The Classical Oil Figure Class- Fall 2017


This course is designed to help all levels of students (though some experience is helpful) with creating a three dimensional image of the human figure. We will carefully go thru the steps of creating a classical oil figure painting, starting with a charcoal drawing using Sight-Size measuring, transferring that image, and then creating a full color painting. We will be working from life, and discussing: Color mixing, sight-size measuring, expressive compositions, muscular and skeletal anatomy, as well as form lighting.
There will be one long pose for the length of the class.

The Classical Oil Portrait Class- Fall 2017


This unique 9 week class carefully moves through the different stages of creating a successful oil portrait. Starting with a rendered black and white sketch in charcoal or pencil; where we evaluate shapes, values, and proportion. Next we each create a small scale color studies, to simplify the overall color choices we will be using. Color mixing using “limited palette”color strings will be demonstrated. Finishing with a larger, fully realized oil portrait on linen.
We will be working from a live model.Underpainting will be demonstrated as a way of simplifying light and shadow patterns, expression and facial anatomy.
