Students of the long pose enjoy an extended pose to produce a finished painting. Participants study the structure of the head, the skull, the muscles, the planes on the face, and the features. Students also learn to create skin tone through color studies. Homework assignments deal with clothing and background. The instructor demonstrates “alla prima” (wet-on-wet) painting and glazing. Portrait and still-life painters are welcome. Model fees are extra. Please indicate in the comments section of your registration if you are interested in portrait or still life.
Students need to purchase supplies for this class. A list of recommended supplies is available in the School Store located in room 217 of the Torpedo Factory.
