Developing the Figure through Drawing and Painting
Learn how to paint the human figure starting with drawing and then progressing to painting from the life model. Students will learn a systematic technique by painting models holding short and long poses. The great paintings throughout history always have a beautiful balance of proportion, value, color and edge. These aspects are what give power and presence to your work. Figure painting is deeply rewarding, engaging and bound to take your appreciation and skill to the next level.
Aristides provides frequent demos, breaking down the process of painting into clear and consecutive steps, as well as critique and instruction each session. Students will focus on how to start a drawing and develop Proportion, Value, Color, and Edge-work, which will help them to accurately capture a likeness within a limited time frame. Practicing this way over the course of the four days will help to sharpen your observation, and take your skill to a new level. www.aristidesarts.com
