This workshop will focus on accurately drawing and painting the figure. The live model will sustain a single pose for the duration of each 3-day session. This sustained focus on the model will allow students to slow down and render the subject in a comprehensive manner.

Students will execute a detailed drawing of the model and learn how to employ a monochromatic block-in to properly identify the values of the subject. The class will culminate with a full color application of color, using thin glaze layers of watercolor or oil paint. The objective of the workshop is to demonstrate how a methodical approach increases the depth and sense of realism in paintings.

The instructor will give a demonstration each day and provide personal instruction throughout the day.

Students are free to work in watercolor or oil paint.
