Drawing and painting the nude figure from life has long been among the most essential practices in the artist’s studio. In this weekend workshop we will offer students the opportunity to work from the naked model in extended poses working towards a full figure painting in oils.
Artist and Illustrator, PJ Lynch, will guide students through rapid gestural sketches of the live model in pencil, progressing to longer poses rendered in charcoal and chalk, and culminating in an extended day-long pose when students will paint the model in oils.
Throughout the weekend, PJ will discuss and demonstrate all aspects of life drawing and painting from general theory, looking at great examples of the work of artists who have specialised in painting the human figure, through issues of anatomy, composition and the very practical techniques of working with various media including oil paints.
Beginners are welcome, although some drawing and painting experience will be appreciated.
