5 DAY FIGURE PAINTING

JULY 16 - 20 TUESDAY - SATURDAY 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Study with a small group in Steven’s Manhattan studio

 THIS 5 DAY WORKSHOP WILL BE DEVOTED TO

The analytical and emotive approach to painting the human figure.

The development of form through an observation and interpretation of plane shifts projecting and receding from the eye will be stressed. There will be emphasis on color and value relationships in a related atmosphere.

Aspects of anatomy, proportion and movement will be discussed along with the development of an Ala Prima technique, which involves both scumbling and glazing.

You will be guided with techniques for dealing with the flux of changes that occur as the model poses, learning to hold and interpret what you see with a selective eye.

THERE WILL BE LECTURE, DEMONSTRATIONS, CRITIQUES, DISCUSSION OF MATERIALS, ISSUES OF LIGHT STRUCTURE IN REGARD TO FORM, COLOR, REFLECTIVE PROPERTIES OF FLESH AND DEVELOPMENT OF COLOR RELATIONSHIPS.

The fee for the week is $1150.00 PLUS $50 Model fee.
