Problems in: Painting, An Introduction to Figure Painting
Students will work from a live model with oil paint. The challenge of working from a live model is to remember that the entire surface of the painting is the image and not just the figure. Assignments will be designed to teach students how to create the illusion of volume and space on a flat surface by using anatomy, color and composition. The subject of the painting may be the figure but the content of each persons work will be related but different. Students will be encouraged to discover how they want to use the figure as a means for self-expression.
