Painting the Figure with David Shevlino
April 25 : 9:30 am - April 29 : 4:30 pm$550
In this workshop the class will start with a loose, quick acrylic underpainting, then work over it in oil paint. The acrylic paint dries within a few minutes, making it ideal for underpainting. On the first morning there will be a demonstration, then the class will paint from the model. Painting over an underpainting allows for more building up of paint so that parts can be scraped and wiped away to expose the underlying tones and forms. This lends itself to an expressive, more abstract approach, while creating an interplay between tones, forms and color. In addition to brushes, we’ll be using plastic scrapers to add and remove paint.
