Figurative Painting Program: Color
Scottsdale Artists’ School is hosting a full year figurative painting program taught by nationally acclaimed, local artist Robert Lemler. In a series of extended sessions, students will be thoroughly immersed in the subject of figurative painting. This program is designed especially for those who have asked for more of a long term learning relationship with an instructor. Although one session naturally follows another, it is not necessary that each class be taken consecutively.
*COMPLIMENTARY PROGRAM PREVIEW AND DEMO Saturday, September 16, 2017 1pm-3pm
A sound understanding of drawing and tonal relationships logically precedes the study of color. During this second 10 week block of the Figurative Painting Program students will study color and color mixing for the representational painter and how the color of light affects these choices. Beginning with an understanding of the primary color palette, students will explore other limited color palettes including the color choices of Anders Zorn, Ned Jacob, and Richard Schmid. The interrelated topics of this block will be examined in the painting of a master copy as well as portrait, nude, and costumed subjects.
