This August-- come paint with me-- I have a
Painting Workshop on
Whidbey Island near Seattle
The Figure in the Environment
Date: August 2 - 5
Skill level: Intermediate to Advanced
We will learn how to bring together work from life, from studies, and from photos to create convincing paintings of a figure in an environment.
We will first work in the field to create an oil study from life of an external environment. We will then move inside and work with the model from life. Using our oil sketch and photos for our environment reference, we will place the figure in a believable space. A unified palette will bring cohesion to the picture. I will demo both in the field and from the model, as well as help everyone hands-on to bring expression and control to their figurative work.
This is a pretty unique opportunity to detach from day to day concerns and focus on painting in a beautiful setting!
