[Intermediate to advanced] The class is a fusion of classical methods and contemporary painting. The focus is creating a narrative, while capturing the character of the model to evoke human presence. Structural landmarks and anatomical points of the skull, strong value design, color, and edges will be stressed to create a 3 dimensional form on a 2 dimensional surface. Textures will be demonstrated in palette knife, drip, splatter, and soft rubber bray rollers to get a contemporary thick an thin effect to the painting.
