We will work with live models, still-lifes, florals and photos. We’ll explore drawing, composition, proportion, value, perspective and color. Using a step-by-step method in both oils and pastels, you'll see how easily you can tackle complicated subjects.
Be prepared to paint (or pastel) in every class.
You will be sent a schedule by email before class begins. On days we have a model, we will spend the first half hour doing gesture drawing on newsprint, so bring an 18x24 newsprint pad, vine or compressed charcoal and money to pay model fee (approximately $10-15, depending on number of student in class that day). The rest of that class period we will paint the long pose.
