Students will explore observational Figure and Portrait Painting in poses that last one to two weeks. The focus is on alla prima gestural painting that captures character after preparing a solid foundation of good proportion and body structure. Using oil or acrylic, this painting course promotes the ability to capture drama wherever it is expressed in the body. This is a no-solvents class and assistance will be provided for oil painters needing to adapt to a toxin free technique. The instructor offers a clearly structured technique broken down into stages that are learned at your pace and in your style.
