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
