Course Description

Angie Redhead will create a group figure painting on canvas. She will take you through the process used when painting figures for murals, except in a smaller scale.

This class will cover: reference material resources, surface prep, sketching a classical figure outline, composition, the underpainting and painting the overlayers.

The Renaissance period is my most favourite time in art. In part due to advances in materials, renewed interest in the classics and availability of patrons, artists experienced a rebirth which
pushed their art to new depths. Figure painting was a common theme in this era and was a way to express stories of the past and present.

During this online class, we will create a group figure painting on canvas. I will take you through the process I’ve used when painting figures for murals, except in a smaller scale.

This class will cover: reference material resources, surface prep, sketching a classical figure outline, composition, the underpainting and painting the overlayers.

*Please note that nude figure photos will be referenced online, and then they will be drawn and painted.
