Overcoming the challenges of figure painting
A painting workshop
This workshop will be a complimentary course to the open Friday Morning Model Sessions held in the mornings. In the afternoon, the workshop will focus on the challenges figure and portrait painting present. This will include accurate color mixing techniques, temperature organization, value organization to create form, and tools to improve the linear drawing of a figure.
In this afternoon workshop, we will primarily be working with masterworks and still life objects as we create color and value studies in order to discuss flesh tones and value hierarchies. Towards the end of the workshop, we will also work with a live portrait model.
We will be doing a number of one day projects designed to address different elements of accurately painting the figure or portrait.
These will include:
Monochromatic value studies of master works
Grisaille temperature studies of still life objects
Limited pallet color studies of master works
Full pallet color studies of still life objects
Full pallet color studies of master works
Full pallet color studies of a live portrait model
I encourage students signing up for this class to also join the Friday Morning Model Sessions that will be going on earlier in the day. As the class progresses, I will be happy to give you feedback during the open model sessions on topics we were discussing in the afternoon classes.
In addition to teaching the workshop, William will also be doing the projects alongside the class as a running demo for students to reference.
