I'm Teaching a Workshop in New York in March!

Hi All! I'm super excited to announce that I'm offering a figure painting workshop in New York in March!  We'll be using the famous limited palette that Anders Zorn used, consisting of only white, black, red and yellow ochre. This offers a surprisingly full range of colors as well as providing great color harmony. I hope you can join us!

Contemporary Figure Painting Using Classical Techniques 

Limited to 10 participants!

Location: 231 Maujer Street, 1st Floor, Brooklyn

Dates: March 20th from 6pm to 10pm, March 21st and 22nd from 10am to 4pm, 2015

$300 plus model fees

Learn a foundation of traditional techniques that can be used to develop your own personal style.

This three-day figure painting workshop is a unique opportunity for students of all levels to learn the process of painting the figure in oils using a limited palette.

The course will center on the experience of painting from a live model and there will be a single, sustained pose throughout the workshop. Participants will learn how to achieve a better likeness as well as how to paint convincing flesh tones. Each day will include a painting demonstration, discussion and individual instruction at the easel.

The beginner will learn fundamental principles such as how to mix colors and render form modeling. The more advanced student will discover how to take their work to the next level and achieve the finish that they desire.  These tips can be applied to all future work and improve any painting of any subject.

Discussions and handouts will cover the stages to developing a painting, comparative measuring, proportion and structure of the face and body, as well as glazing, value, edges, composition, light, and modeling with color temperature.
