New Figure Painting Class Scheduled

(Current Progress of "Security")

I was just asked by ARTichokes to lead a figure painting class on August 26th, 27th, and 28th from 10 am until 3 pm each day. They are providing a light lunch for all participants! Below is more info:
The class will consist of a combination of demonstration, discussion, and hands-on painting from the live, draped model. Lacey will illustrate each step by demonstrating for the class and narrating her thought process as she goes along. She will also discuss the ideas behind her methods and will present various paintings and references that clearly reflect these ideas. As students progress with their own work, Lacey will offer guidance and insight one-on-one and will be available to answer questions and help the student through difficult spots as they arise.

The first day of the workshop will be primarily spent on creating a proportionally accurate drawing and value map in monochromatic oil paint. Day two will focus on building the form of the figure as we learn more about value and skin tones. We will work with a fairly limited palette and suggestions will be provided as to color mixtures to use. Day three will be all about refinements: finishing off the form and nuances in hue and final details.
Final details including fees will be posted soon!

Love the extended vertical format. Exciting piece. Great contrast in value.
