Drawing & Painting Summer Session 3
June 21 – July 3, 2020
Painting What You See
Painting from life requires a rigorous cultivation of a self-questioning, open mind. A true-to-life painting is an exercise in active not-knowing. In this workshop, we’ll work in oils from a combined subject matter of still life and life models. We’ll learn to look at the visual plane more truthfully, more simply, more wholly. In the first week of the workshop, we’ll cover pre-mixing colors and values on our palettes and multiple approaches to starting a painting. In the second week, we’ll work from one point of view, freely evolving, starting over, repainting our work. All levels. Code 03D
