    In this class we’ll focus on figure painting from a live model. We’ll explore techniques for creating colorful, abstract patterns with a sense of movement and energy by first making a quick underpainting in acrylic, then painting into it with oil paint.Large brushes and a plastic scraper will be used to apply paint generously and to also scrape away to reveal the underlying acrylic underpainting. I’ll also be talking about edges and how blurring the line between the main subject and background helps in creating an abstract pattern of forms, color and dynamism.This class will be helpful for students who have a desire to go beyond traditional representation of the figure and to move out of their comfort zone.Supply list is provided upon sign up.
