Adult: 4-Day Figure Painting Workshop with Artist David Shevlino – “Alla Prima Painting from Life and Photos”
November 7, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until November 8, 2020
In this class we’ll paint alla prima (wet into wet) and explore painting different subjects from photos, including the figure and portrait. We’ll work from a model on the first day, and then we’ll use photos of other subjects, such as people, children, and landscape. We’ll talk about techniques for simplifying the subject and learning to paint with directness and economy. We’ll also talk about the basics of form, value, color, and how we use our painting knowledge to interpret, rather than copy, photos so that they can become successful paintings. Minimum of 8 students, Maximum of 15 students, FEE: $450 for Booth Museum Members, $475 for not-yet-members. Register
