The human figure is one of the biggest challenges in drawing and painting. This 5-day workshop is designed to progressively build the students understanding and proficiency of rendering and painting the human form from life. We will focus on: drawing fundamentals, layout and composition, working from simple to detailed, color mixing techniques, light and shadow values, handling edges, fine details, etc. Each student will spend the entire course going through the step-by-step process to create one finished oil painting from a live model, while developing their own individual style and technique.

Each morning, Michael will conduct a demonstration, break for lunch, then students will continue to work on their own piece as Michael provides one-on-one instruction. If you want to grow your skills and understanding as a figure/portrait artist, this course is for you!

Please sign up early; class size is limited.
