Short Pose Figure Painting in Oils

Instructor- Michelle Chrisman
Harwood Art Center-ALBQ, NM

This is a fast paced class that will move your painting ability ahead faster than any other approach. Using large brushes & pre-mixed paint, you will rapidly lay in entire paintings starting with just 5 minutes! The basis of strong painting is designing beautiful shapes and quickly painting them in their correct values. You will paint from the clothed model, moving from 5 to 20 minute poses, building the entire composition in relation to the figure. Michelle will help you quickly move to “level 3” painting, learning to see the abstract shapes before you. (Levels 1, 2, & 3 painting will be explained). Michelle will help you improve your use of the medium of oil paint & teach you how to mix all values and colors with a limited palette. She will do demos throughout the class complemented by plenty of individual instruction.
