The Figure in Drawing and Watercolor
The figure is an ever-changing source of inspiration for artists of all skill levels. This workshop will focus on drawing techniques that help to capture the gesture of the figure without overdrawing it, leaving room to develop the piece with watercolor and brushwork. We will cover basic watercolor techniques as we learn about the vast amount of colors and values you can mix from a limited palette. Small figurative studies will evolve into larger pieces compatible with your comfort level. We will work from both life and printed references. This class is a good fit for anyone wanting to try their hand at this subject and medium, or for those wishing to strengthen their skills and challenge themselves further creatively. A materials list will be provided.
