This figure painting course is designed to develop the intermediate or advanced painter, enabling you to capture the spirit of the figure with intensity, gesture and rhythm. You will work from a model (with a ratio of one model to eight students), exploring the figure in a series of long and short poses through a variety of mediums including charcoal, graphite, and oil paints. You’ll look at proportion, dynamism and accuracy, as well as exploring tone and temperature changes under different light conditions. The week will combine all these techniques into a two-day pose with dramatic lighting, before engaging in a group feedback session. Your expert tutor will be on hand to provide individual and group guidance throughout the week.
