3-Day Costumed Figure Painting Workshop with Artist Nancy Boren

April 12 @ 9:00 am - April 14 @ 4:00 pm

3-Day Costumed Figure Painting Workshop with Artist Nancy Boren / “Different Approaches”

The costumed figure is exciting and challenging to paint. We will explore several different ways to light a figure in the studio and will do several paintings in the 3 days using various techniques: a white background, a toned background, a limited palette as well as a full palette of colors. I also incorporate block printing into my paintings on occasion — I will demonstrate that and bring some scraps of easy to cut material for you to make your own small stamps. It is helpful to be well-versed in all of these approaches when you start to consider the best way to implement a painting idea. Are you trying to create something straightforward, or mysterious, or monumental? Learn how to fill your bag of tricks with options.  I will do short demonstrations, all in oil, but you will get a lot of painting time in with one-on-one instruction. Other media is welcome, but my expertise is in oil.  The last afternoon I will be happy to critique two pieces you bring from home. Hearing the critique of others’ work can be informative and helpful to all the students but participating in the critique is not a requirement.
