Quick figure studies are a great method to effectively improve your figurative painting skills.
In this class, you will learn to paint lively figures. You will receive various tasks and references from photos, and advanced students may also work from models. The course instructor will support you with your individual questions or problems.
This class is not suitable for complete beginners; you should already be proficient in drawing portraits. Ideally, you've taken our figure drawing class first or concurrently. There, you learn the fundamentals of creating a portrait, regardless of whether you prefer drawing or painting later on. If you've never painted with oil colors or have just started, it's recommended to attend our painting fundamentals class first.
You can participate in this course using either oil or acrylic paints (e.g., Golden Open). However, we recommend oil paints for their flexibility compared to acrylics. If you prefer digital painting, feel free to join this painting course with your tablet.
