Painting The Figure In Oil With Douglas David
September 21, 2021 @ 10:00am-4:00pm$25 – $340
INSTRUCTOR: DOUGLAS DAVID
TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 & 22
10 A.M. – 4 P.M.
SVAC Member: $280; SVAC Non-member: $340 (includes $25 model fee per day)
Douglas will cover the basic principles of oil painting with regard to painting the figure; discussions will consider composition, massing, building form, light and shadow, mixing skin tones and–depending on your own style–knowing when a work is finished (learning how not to overwork your painting).
Students will work from a live model in their own styles so that the finished works are their own. Classic poses and simple draping will provide interesting composition and design options. Douglas will overview his palette and the concepts his work entails. Students will mix paints and learn to mix basic strings of color to help comprehend the preparation/set up to prepare to paint.
Students will be able to grow and develop at a rate that is to their comfort. Douglas will be able to assist students with mixing and will review individual students a few times during each session. Plan to produce 3-4 paintings, depending on skill level. Plan to bring notebook/ sketchbook and enjoy some demos along with some great stories to help you remember the principles that are the foundation of Douglas’ teaching. Brown bag lunch is the best way to keep the momentum and flow going.
