ATELIER: THE FIGURE IN CONTEXT
Ability: Intermediate, Advanced

This workshop will explore how the figure interacts with its environment. We will look at the big picture and at the spatial relationships that situate a figure in its context. We will discuss how the figure can either function as the focal point or be subdued to fit within an overarching motif. Working from observation in oils, we will do a series of small painted studies to focus on composition as well as accurately matching value and color relationships. We will experiment with lighting, color palettes, and with the figure in both highly chromatic and neutral arrangements. This workshop will be taught through lecture, demonstrations and individual critique.
