This two day figure painting course will offer an opportunity for intensive study under the tuition of an experienced working artist. During the two days students will work with two models of contrasting flesh tones. Human skin is immensely diverse in texture, colour and reflection of light. Some differences are intense, some subtle. This is for each artist to discover. These visual contrasts between the 2 studio models are a stimulus and counterpoint for the student to create a dynamic unity in a painting. Students will gain an insight into the tutor’s own practice, consider practical concerns regarding form and colour. Starting with preliminary sketches we will aim to produce a more ‘finished’ painting of the models over the two days. The aim of this course is to give students not only the practical skills to complete a figure painting, but also the confidence to produce a painting that is expressive and full of personal style. This exciting course is an intensive two days that offers a high level of tutor contact time.
