In this 3-day workshop we will paint a different figure each day from life. Our goal is to paint the reality that we see, influenced by the realism and artistry of the Old Masters. To accomplish this end we will carefully observe the unique forms of the model with respect to shapes, values and color in order to capture the character and gesture of the particular person posing.
We will paint in oils, alla prima or wet on wet. The instructor, Max Ginsburg, will demonstrate and explain the procedure.
Then he will critique each students work as they are painting the model. Attention will be given to the observation of form, seeing color and values and the mixing of colors in order to paint what we see. Design, proportions, perspective, foreshortening, texture, composition and maintaining our materials will be part of our study.
We will also study multifigure composition combining our figure paintings we have painted into a multifigure composition.”
