In this 5 day class you will learn how to paint the complicated subject of the human form in a simple and organized way. Taking advantage of a sustained pose for the entire duration of the course allows each student to first draw, then paint, the figure in sight size.
Proportions and gesture are the initial focus, with progression into understanding value, and capturing the impression of light. With these basic, but essential points covered, each student is taught how to approach colour mixing, paint handling, and how to control their edges. Individual critiques tailored to each students needs and skill levels mean by the end of the week each has learned how to capture the figure successfully in paint.
Working from the live model for six hours a day under professional photographic lights allow for careful, unchanging observation of the figure. Limited to 13 students, this is a wonderful opportunity for close instruction under a professional tutor. The workshop room is located within the main school of The London Atelier of Representational Art allowing for use of the main facilities of the full time school.
The End Result
By working for six hours each day over the five day period each student leaves with a carefully observed figure painting of the live model. The thirty hour pose over a single week giving the student the chance to really capture the essence of the figure.
