This is an ideal class for beginner-intermediate students who want to learn a step-by-step process on how to make a Basic Human Figure Painting. The course will cover preliminary drawing color combination, form, texture, composition, and the use of brushes and other painting tools. No Drawing training is required.
In the first class, the instructor will explain the process that students need to follow using an image as a visual reference. The students will learn to draw the figure on the canvas and apply the concepts of symmetry, proportions, and measurements. After the drawing, they are going to focus on how to set up the palette, mixing and blending some colors and how to start the background color.
In the second-class, students will learn how to apply the paint according to the shapes and forms of the figure, light and shadows, modulating tones, color application and comparisons, sense of unity, composition balance, and final details.
Students are going to have constant evaluation and guidance during the class while they are painting. The instructor will answer questions and then a final critique will review all the things they learned, what they did correctly, and what things need modification before the end of the course.
