Starting September 5. Paint the figures / portraits in a landscape setting. This course features weekly live models en plein air when weather permits and in the studio otherwise. Our final session date includes two models. Demonstrations in oil, group and individual instruction.
I pulled this file out to share with my oil painting students for sketching figures on the spot, to demonstrate finding the simple shapes, colors and lights and darks on the form while painting en plein air. I posted some figure sketching notes on working at the shore here.
Painting by the shore again. Here are process shots from my oil painting demonstration during Wednesday's plein air art class at Beavertail Park in Jamestown, Rhode Island. I began with a ground color of quinacridone mixed with white on a gessoed birch panel. Using my guerrilla painter pochacde box and tripod which is very easy to work with.
