The Rome Workshops

FIGURE PAINTING AND THE PHOTO REFERENCE INSTRUCTOR: MICHELLE DOLL

This 10-day workshop will focus on step-by-step methods of painting the figure using photographic references that I use for my own work. I offer hands on instruction and demonstrations, beginning with creating a strong visual narrative through compositional design, cropping, lighting and perspective. We’ll cover elements in Photoshop and printing for stronger photo references. I will demonstrate an easy gridding technique and imprimatura painting method to create the first layer. I will teach an organized method of mixing a color palette, and various painting processes to encourage spontaneity. The student will gain a clear understanding of color and tonal relationships, as well as strengthening realistic figure proportions and anatomy. The ultimate goal is to create a painting that carries meaning and artistry beyond the photo reference.

The Rome Workshops are located in the historic center of Rome beside the famed Campo de’Fiore. Along with inspiring class lectures and in class painting, we will have opportunities to tour Rome’s great works of art in the museums, piazzas, churches and galleries. All levels are welcomed!
