Design and Painting
In this workshop, Mike will demonstrate his process and approach to painting with a morning demo painting the model. Students will be painting from life models in the afternoon.” Mike will demonstrate his technique of “drawing” with paint, as well as show other techniques or “tricks” to simplify the figure, which can be a daunting task for many oil painters. He will discuss the balance between representational technique and instinctive design decisions that can transform an academic figure study. The idea is to better enhance and evolve your own personal style by remaining free to manipulate the painting as you envision it.
