Kim English brings a deep level of expertise in helping students understand how to effectively draw and paint the essence, gesture and correct anatomical structure of a figure. Interpreting the planes of the figure for creating 3 dimensional form is at the heart of this workshop. As a former teacher of Anatomy at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design for many years and a skilled painter of the figure, Kim demonstrates how to identify the planes of the figure. This is an outstanding, intensive workshop designed for gaining a stronger academic foundation of the figure for painting.
For the first 2 days, students will draw and follow along as Kim draws the figure, breaking out the specific planes from head, torso, legs, arms,hands and feet. The last two day, students will be painting from nude models (one female and one male) incorporating the knowledge into their paintings. He will provide a short painting demo and provide many handouts for resource tools.
Students must have some painting knowledge having worked with oils or acrylics for at least 2-3 years understanding how to mix colors and use painting brushes and tools.
