In this workshop, we will work for two days from a live model and two from students’ own photo references of figures in an environment.   In order to have a better understanding of the figure, the first two days allow for painting the model in both quick and longer poses.  This is good preparatory study for understanding proportions, movement, color and other aspects of the figure in order to then create paintings of situations with figures in them. 


Aline will demo in both pastels and oils and show how to approach both short and longer poses.  She enjoys doing street scenes and interiors where the figure is part of the picture but not necessarily the focus. She will also focus on technique in terms of color, value and design.
