PAINTING THE FIGURE IN OILS
This is a weekend workshop based on traditional, academic approaches to drawing and painting from the figure.
Working directly with the life model, students will be introduced to the techniques involved in creating an anatomically correct life drawing and painting.
The course will cover the principle skills of expression through mark making, tonal pitch, scale and proportion. Colour mixing and nuance will be addressed on an individual basis as we extend into painting.
We will also look at creating spatial depth, and how to achieve a believable resolved work through sustained observation. This will be a rewarding
workshop open to all levels of ability from beginners to the more experienced.
