Workshop Wrap Up with Hege Elisabeth Haugen

Our 1-week Figure Painting workshop with Hege Elisabeth Haugen recently wrapped up. During the workshop students worked from the model using sight-size. Students particularly enjoyed the information they received on the use of palette and color sketch, the block-in stage and the design of half-tone shapes.

Hege Elisabeth Haugen was born in Hönefoss, Norway. She was a full-time student of Odd Nerdrum in Oslo for two years in addition to spending a few summers both in Iceland and Norway studying with him. In 2003 she began her studies at The Florence Academy of Art. Her paintings are in private and public collections in Norway as well as in private collections in Denmark and Italy.

Massing in the general values.

By Day 5 students were excited with the light effect they had achieved in their paintings.
