I am honored to be teaching two classes in the e-course LET‘S FACE IT 2018 along with a number of amazing art teachers. This yearlong course is hosted by Kara Bullock and it is all about painting the face and the figure. This year will be special because each class will explore a different famous artist, moving through many art movements starting from Renaissance through Impressionism and Art Nouveau to Abstract Art, to name just a few. I truly believe it is going to be an awesome year of learning and exploring.
My main lesson will be an Egon Schiele inspired Selfportrait in which we will explore contour drawing in a continous-line style as Schiele painted, using figural distortion and his preferred mediums, such as watercolors and gouache. We also want to learn from Schiele to take a bold look at ourselves and create a selfportrait with expressive hand positions and gestures.
My second class will explore Teil Duncans abstracted figures. In this mini lesson, we will experiment with Duncans expressive color palettes, intricate clothing patterns and the definite light source she uses on her loose abstractions of figures.
