Seth Haverkamp Figure Painting Workshop

Figure Painting with Seth Haverkamp: Energized Start, Graceful Finish

In this figure painting workshop, students will work from a live model to vigorously apply paint in simplified blocks to capture the gesture of the pose. Using a limited palette, students will paint with both thin and thick paint, in conjunction with wiping paint out, to achieve a successful drawing.

Students will then work on pushing values to paint in the fall of light and add a three dimensional effect. Using a grey toned canvas with paint scumbled over it, in conjunction with thick paint in the lighter areas, a fully realized figure can be achieved. Paint manipulation and brush handling will be discussed and demonstrated. Seth will discuss how this leads directly into a multiple layered studio figure painting. Seth will also discuss the similarity between painting from life and from photographs.
