This figure painting course will offer an opportunity for intensive study under the tuition of Sarah Jane Moon, whose painting Dr Ronx was recently selected for inclusion in the BP Portrait Award Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. The course will include opportunities to visually think through composition, colour and tone in a graphic and bold way through drawing and painting from the model. A day will be spent drawing and studying tone in anticipation of three days creating a dynamic and fully realised figure painting.
Over an intense five-day period, students will work towards creative exciting and emotionally engaged work that has both accuracy and expression. The course is designed to give students the practical skills and grounding in technique to paint with confidence and unique style. It will further develop skills in painting a good portrait likeness whilst also enabling an increased understanding of what it means to make a compelling painting with narrative and compositional intrigue. Students will receive regular one-to-one guidance throughout the course.
