Sept 20 Painting the Figure from Life workshop

I"ll be teaching a 1-day, figurative workshop at the Calgary School of Art on Saturday, September 20 and I hope you'll join me.  Here's what it's all about:

To the painters who have told me they "can't even draw a stick man", this workshop is for you.
To the artists whose figures look wooden, this workshop is for you.
To the landscape painters who have always wanted to try painting people, this workshop is for you.
To the figurative painters who want to loosen up, this workshop is for you.

Join me for a thrilling and engrossing day of life painting that holds something for every painter.  We'll work from a clothed model and tackle several poses so you'll get lots of practise in turning paint on canvas into a graceful, believable figure. 

-I'll teach you how to achieve proper proportion without preliminary drawing and how to suggest the hands and face without becoming precious. 

-You'll learn to capture a gesture with boldness and confidence, and how to integrate a figure into its environment. 

-And you'll feel the joy and challenges of working from life.

Suitable for oil and acrylic painters with some experience.  Demonstrations will be in oil.

**you can register through the Calgary School of Art website.  I hope to see you there!
