Images of people are inherently interesting. But what makes one painting compelling and another something that you pass by? In this two-day painting workshop, we will focus on laying out dynamic compositions, placing the figure on the canvas in ways that create captivating images with strong impact on the viewer. We will run through a series of small scale exercises that explore the figure’s relationship to its surroundings by use of line, shape, color, and scale. We will use old master paintings as our jumping off point for approaching a blank canvas that make for personally meaningful paintings.
