Oil Painting: The Figure in the Landscape

Oil Painting: The Figure in the Landscape

Tuesdays, November 27 - December 18
6 - 9 pm

Working in oil paint, students will explore value divisions while focusing on the figure in the landscape. Drawing inspiration from the photographs of Anne Brigman (on view in the Museum through January 2019), students will focus on composition and the ways in which the figure compliments the environment. Students will explore the basics of brush sketching and massing, identifying spatial cues in a landscape and will explore under-painting, glazing and dry-brushing techniques. Students will work from photo-reference as well as a live model in the final sessions.
