What you will do
3 hour class
Probably the most exciting thing to paint (yet overshadowed by life drawing), painting the clothed figure is full of colour mixing and expression. In the Renaissance the expression was in the drapery - clothes are overlooked when looking at a painting but they are key in the make up of any clothed figure, and let's be honest, everyone we see unless intimate is clothed!
You will look at the clothed figure and paint with equal emphasis the hands, head and fabric. Looking at shapes, lines, colour, texture and tone and with the help of artist Alice Neel, clothes will not be a sideline to the study of the figure but a celebration.
