FIGURE PAINTING FROM LIFE
INSTRUCTOR: MICHELLE DOLL
3 DAY WORKSHOP: January 11-13


During this 3 day workshop, the student will study basic and advanced techniques of painting the figure from life. You will learn a step-by-step method of oil painting, beginning with the imprimatura sketch, then a direct method of painting and mixing color to create a realistic figure painting.

We will discuss elements in creating a strong visual narrative through compositional design, cropping, lighting and perspective. I will show you an organized method of mixing a color palette, and various painting processes to encourage spontaneity while creating a visual narrative. The student will gain a clear understanding of color and tonal relationships while strengthening realistic figure proportions and anatomy. The goal is to create a painting that carries meaning and artistry studying the figure from life.
