Steven Assael: Painting the Dramatic Figureby Matthew Innis |
This 4-day workshop will focus on painting the emotive figure with a particular focus on exploring by way of color and form. Steven will discuss both an analytical and emotive approach to painting the human figure with an emphasis on color and value relationships in a related atmosphere. The class will consist of a single long pose in both cool and warm light. The development of form through an observation and interpretation of plane shifts projecting and receding from the eye will be stressed. Aspects of anatomy, proportion and movement will be discussed along with the development of an Alla Prima technique, which involves both scumbling and glazing. The course will involve lectures, demos, and critiques on a daily basis.
