This course is designed to introduce beginners, intermediate and advanced students alike the importance of capturing the essence of the figure in single sittings. Students will learn the value of mastering the principles of the “Premier-Coup” approach to painting in oils. This method is designed to capture the final effect in an oil painting or portrait. Each stroke is deliberately placed and untouched giving the final appearance of being painted in a single sitting. This is one of many important techniques for figure painters and landscape painters in capturing the fleeting effects of light on form. Once understood, painters can elaborate and adapt the method to suit their own liking and style.
Students will work in oils on canvas or board while in front of the posed model. Students will work while receiving personal attention and instruction. Demos and brief lectures will be given and explained. All levels of painting experience are invited, although experience in drawing is very helpful.
