Figure drawing is a great foundation for any type of art, and it can be especially helpful for learning how to paint. In this workshop we will cover ways to draw the figure in a tonal way and directly apply that to making paintings. Each class will include multiple demonstrations, detailed instructions, and individual feedback. We will start out with discussions on figure gesture, structure, and tone. After that we will move on to quick composition studies, and cumulating in a complete composition suitable as a reference for final painting. Photographic references of clothed models will be provided by the instructor. The focus of this class is about using your figure drawing and figure studies to enhance your figurative paintings. The class will held via ZOOM workshops and students will need to have a webcam and microphone. Instructor demos will be recorded for students. Join us from anywhere EST!
