Instructor: Teresa Oaxaca

Working from a live model, the instructor demonstrates construction of a 2D likeness using light and shade with emphasis upon transition and articulation of the form. Gesture and expression are discussed, including how the artists may bring the form to life with their own natural calligraphy of style. Topics include chiaroscuro, form modeling, half tones and high light, massing of tone, terminator/core line of shadows, basic anatomy and how to render detail without losing form or overall harmony. Model fee extra.
