The Model, the Mood and More
Beautiful set-ups and good fun are promised as students work from the clothed model. Emphasis will be on creating a mood through composition. By posing the model in interesting environments, students will have the opportunity to explore the many facets of painting. The critical elements of a well-designed painting will be discussed including: placement, values, edges and brushwork. Students will be encouraged to incorporate mood and emotion into their paintings, allowing them to move beyond the “studio exercise phase” and into more exciting aspects of creating art.
