Portrait and Figure Painting
Students attempt to master the supreme goal of academic training – painting of the human form.
Building on the successful completion of the previous studies, students complete a strong block-in drawing of the model, transfer it to a panel or canvas, execute bozzetti or color studies, then paint the model in oil paint, first in limited, and then full color palettes over a carefully studied under painting.
The goal is to become comfortable handling paint and to understand the procedures necessary to begin and finish a painting.
The average pose is two to four weeks.
