Painting the Figure from Photographs. Thursday 24th - Monday 28th August 2017
Jered Woznicki, Senior Painting and Drawing Instructor at the Angel Academy of Art in Florence, Italy is coming to Belfast in August 2017 to deliver a detailed workshop on Painting the Figure from Photographs.
This training seminar is a condensed version of the two-year course that Mr Woznicki teaches in Italy on Painting from the Live Model. The same classic procedure will be used and the same realistic flesh-colours will be employed during this workshop. Everyone will learn how to balance a flesh-coloured complexion in order to make their figures seem more believable and lifelike.
Topics included in this course are: gesture, construct, articulation, the block-in of the colours, the essential balance of flesh-colours through different values, requisite planes and the finishing of the painting. Special attention will be paid to the layout, function and use of the figure-painting palette.
Mr Woznicki will demonstrate the use of the figure-painting palette and will advise every student, individually, on how to best employ these lessons to improve their figure paintings.
This course will provide a structure and methodology in traditional figure painting, suitable for both beginning and experienced realist artists. Mr Woznicki is renowned for the excellence of his workshops, and early booking is recommended. A fantastic opportunity to avail of the expertise taught in The Angel Academy, but in a rather cooler climate!
