This is a four day workshop of artistic inspiration and productive skill building. Participants will explore life model sketching and the progression towards vibrant and rhythmic figurative oil paintings.
Day 1 - Materials and Model Setup
Emre will begin by introducing himself and telling you a bit about which artists have inspired him and influenced his work over the years. He will then explain his materials and show you how he goes about creating a composition starting with real life models. We will draw and capture form and emotions from a life model. Additionally, we will take reference photos of the pose to be used for further study.
Day 2 - Color Palettes And Compositions
Emre will guide you through painting demonstrations using different color palettes, both of which are very useful exercises to try at home. Then, we will use the previous day's model sketches and reference photos to create painting compositions.
Day 3 - Figurative Painting Exercise
Today Emre will demonstrate how he approaches painting in oil. We will create the final figurative paintings, with a focus on adding layers of color.
Day 4 - Figurative Painting Exercise And Final Critique
This day will be the final critique session, where every participant will display their favorite painting they have produced.
You will learn:
* Helpful tips and advice about drawing life models
* How to transition your skeches into large paintings.
* Figure and emotions
* Form and color
* Tonal value range
