Draw or Paint the Figurative Subject

Draw or Paint the Figurative Subject

Students may choose to draw or paint the model from life. Portrait, nude and costumed models will be posed in a supportive context. Two weeks of portrait study will be followed by two weeks of working with the figure model. During the final two weeks, we will paint the costumed model. When drawing we focus on shape, edge and value relationships. These areas of study are fundamental to the successful interpretation of the figurative subject. Painters will focus on those elements as well as color relationships. The color and strength of the light source must be understood by the artist working in color. Daily demonstrations, lecture and individualized help will be offered. All levels of experience and all mediums are welcome. www.robertlemler.com
