In this one-session workshop, you will see the figure as a whole, in harmony with the environment. You will learn to abstract the figure and focus on seeing larger color and value relationships, while gaining a deeper understanding of basic anatomical landmarks. You will learn to see and paint the effect of light on skin and the environment without getting too caught up in details.

First, we will start with the lay-in and gesture. Next, you will paint the figure using large color shapes and simple, strong color relationships between the figure and its environment. You will learn how to use the background color to help find the right skin color for your model.

After a brief instructor intro and demonstration, there will be individual attention at the easel. The instructor will respond to the needs of each student and address each level of development. Classes are appropriate for all skill levels.
