Clarifying the Stages of Figure Painting


Beginner-Advanced; Location: VanDerVeer Studio

TUITION: Members: $207; Non-members: $237 (includes model)

Capturing the likeness, gesture, anatomy, and personality of a live model can be a great challenge, but Darren Kingsley will take you through the stages of figure painting he learned from several masters, including Nelson Shanks and the instructors of Atelier Lack. You will study the figure in ways which will allow you to translate a three-dimensional reality into a two-dimensional painting that conveys the fullest possible sculptural form. Darren’s recent BSSS workshop was so successful that his students strongly recommended that he be invited back. During this new workshop, you will focus on painting the figure with a complete range of values and develop the ability to make accurate, relative value calibrations. This workshop is a special opportunity for artists interested in figure and portrait painting. A materials list will be provided upon registration.
