Painting the Clothed Figure in the Environment: An Energized Start and Graceful Finish
Date: May 9-12, 2017
Cost: $550 plus model fee
Skill Level: All levels
In this workshop, students will work from a live model to vigorously apply paint in simplified blocks. Using a limited palette, students will paint with both thin and thick paint, in conjunction with wiping paint out, to achieve a successful drawing. Students will then work on pushing values to paint in the fall of light and add a three dimensional effect.
Using a grey toned canvas with paint scumbled over it, in conjunction with thick paint in the lighter areas, a fully realized figure can be achieved. Paint manipulation and brush handling will be discussed and demonstrated. Seth will discuss how this leads directly into a multiple layered studio figure painting. Seth will also discuss the similarity between painting from life and from photographs.
You will enjoy this workshop and come away with new understanding of painting the figure in an environment.
