Allegory Painting Day

Tutor: Harriet Brittaine

Explore painting a professional life model partially costumed as an allegory of death or darkness.  The day will be spent on one pose to allow plenty of time to work up the painting.

Course Structure:
The course will cover the stages of life painting by focusing on human proportions, values and colour. Good general painting practises will also be covered.

Students will be working in oils, painting from a life model who will be partially costumed.

Students will be aiming to improve their observational and painting skills, to understand the proportions and structure of the human body and to complete a life painting in oils by the end of the day.

Course Requirements:
Some basic painting experience is required

Suitable for intermediate/advanced
