Studio Incamminati, School for Contemporary Realist Art

This workshop will be a combination of short and long pose figure painting in limited pallette combined with demos and exercises with structural forms and anatomy.

We’ll begin to study the figure with shorter poses combined with occasional demos of simple form and structure.

We’ll finish with a 3 day pose including demos of structural thinking, studies of simple, easily understood forms of several body parts combined with anatomy drawings.

The main goal of this class is to explore ways of visualizing the figure in new ways with clear simple forms, to push your ability to understand and use underlying forms combined with large, planar mass shapes to build a figure painting in a clear and easily understood way.
