Supply List

This workshop will help you breathe life and grace into your figurative work.

Working from photo references, you’ll learn the techniques for creating accurate proportion and form, as well a sense of movement and energy.

The workshop will address simplifying faces and mixing rich skin tones.

As well, you’ll learn to compose your figure in its environment using a shape-based approach that focuses on what your painting needs rather than what the photo contains. This approach will help you tackle the conundrum of “what to do with the background?”and teach you how to weave the figure into its environment in a painterly way.

Figure painting is a joyful process. We’ll address it with a logical methodology and a playful spirit.

This workshop is suitable for any medium that uses color. Ingrid’s demos will be in oil.
