Design is fundamental to the success of any painting whether representational, abstract, or non-objective. A representational painting may be well drawn and possess fine form modeling and yet fail due to poor design considerations. The topic of design will be the focus of this last 8 week portion of the Figurative Painting Program. Concepts of design addressed will include linear design, predominant tone and color, the linking of values, an understanding of key, and paint and edge manipulation. This is not a “life painting class” and models will not be used. Students will be asked to bring photographic figural references. Join this class and design better paintings!
