If you are interested in painting portraits or figures, working from “life” is essential. The nuances of light, reflections, and shadows on the form are defining & inspirational. You will be painting from the model within a setting either outdoors or in the classroom, and you'll receive individualized instruction in composition, color, proportions, and the use of your medium of choice. Beginner and advanced students are welcome.
It is important for the artist to not only know proportions, color and composition, but also his or her own style. This will come to fruition in time, and I believe that each student/artist should be encouraged in the development of that style according to ones own creative intuition.
