This workshop pushes you out of your safe zone and into a brand new, looser, abstract direction drawing, painting and collaging the contemporary nude. You will learn expressive painting techniques for the modern painter. If you ever wanted to learn how to paint the freestyle abstract figure, this workshop is for you. Color is explained and explored. You will learn the 12 Design Compositions for a successful painting. Your “drawing the nude” skills are not a prerequisite.
The second day of the workshop will include working directly with the live model in a variety of poses including the nude, draped and partially draped scenarios, lots of paint sketching, gestural drawing and finger painting techniques. Be prepared to paint looser, bolder, freer, lighter and more intuitively. Plenty of time for action-filled painting exercises, demos and personalized attention. All water soluble paints are welcomed. Materials list provided. PDF handouts will be provided.
Note: This course will be delivered via Zoom online meeting platform. You will receive Zoom meeting invitations for each day.
Kate Burridge will be assisting Bob in his studio, monitoring questions as the demonstrations and live model sessions are taking place. In the afternoon sessions when there is not a live model students will spend time working on larger, and more involved paintings in the comfort of your home studio.
There will be ample individual attention consisting of daily 1:1 personal meetings in the afternoon. Students have the option of listening in to these individual critique sessions while they paint or just painting on their own. At the conclusion of each day, students have the option to tune into 1-hour of Q&A with the instructor, talk to their cohorts, and share painting updates.
Registrants will receive a more detailed daily schedule closer to the workshop with individual meetings scheduled with each student.
