Class Description: 

This class is about painting a clothed model alla prima (wet into wet) and the techniques used to create a fresh, direct response to our subjects.  We’ll spend some time on the whole figure and also the head/ features of the face.

On the first morning there will be a demonstration, then the class will paint from the model.  Students will learn to look at the head and figure and see it in terms of large, overall basic shapes.  Working on a toned ground, we’ll start by sketching and placing the subject on the canvas.  Then we block in three simple values: light, dark and mid tone.  

By learning to simplify form, values and color, we begin to interpret and break down the figure into more understandable tones and shapes instead of becoming distracted by details.  This helps us to paint our subjects with greater clarity and directness. This class will be particularly helpful to students who wish to paint more loosely and to paint their subject with greater economy.
