30 hours from the nude model
Guest Instructor: Hege Elisabeth Haugen
5 days, August 5th - 9th, 10:00 - 5:00 (one hour lunch)
This course will explore painting the figure with methods from the Ateliers and Academies of the 19th century. There will be one pose throughout the course allowing a focused study of the different stages, from construction, through the effect of light, towards a finished presentation of the human figure. The sight size method will be explained and demonstrated along with other essential elements such as the use of palette and color sketch, the block in stage and the design of half tone shapes.
