Figure Painting:  Energized Start, Graceful Finish

In this workshop, students will work from a live model to vigorously apply paint in simplified blocks to capture the gesture of the pose.  Using a limited palette, students will paint with both thin and thick paint, in conjunction with wiping paint out, to achieve a successful drawing.  Students will then work on pushing values to paint in the fall of light and add a three dimensional effect.  Using a grey toned canvas with paint scumbled over it, with thick paint in the lighter areas, a fully realized figure can be achieved.  Paint manipulation and brush handling will be discussed and demonstrated.  Seth will discuss how this leads directly into a multiple layered studio figure painting.  Seth will also discuss the similarity between painting from life and from photographs.

July 2018

Tom Root 18-20. Respected painter Tom Root, known for his sympathetic portrayals of people, will lead a three-day figure/portrait workshop focused on the setting of artistic priorities in painting. Participants will work from the live model, painting directly on a toned ground and concentrating on the placement of visual shapes, the orchestration of linear rhythms and the building of form via the flow of light. Tom will discuss the atmosphere implicit in a canvas and the importance of letting forms “breathe.” Students will be encouraged to establish a hierarchy of emphasis in their work by ignoring nonessentials and heightening their sensitivity to the expression of personality and design.Contact Brenda Coldwell at brenda@on-track-studios.com for details.
