The Renaissance period is my most favourite time in art. In part due to advances in materials, renewed interest in the classics and availability of patrons, artists experienced a rebirth which
pushed their art to new depths. Figure painting was a common theme in this era and was a way to express stories of the past and present.
During this one week online class, we will create a group figure painting on canvas. I will take you through the process I’ve used when painting figures for murals, except in a smaller scale.
This class will cover: reference material resources, surface prep, sketching a classical figure outline, composition, the underpainting and painting the overlayers.
Please note that nude figure photos will be referenced online, and then they will be drawn and
