Figure in Oil

 May 19, 20 & 21, 2023

9:00 am - 4:00 pm

$600.00 (plus model fee)



In this 3-day workshop, Zhaoming will teach a traditional “painterly” technique of oil painting. It will be applied to clothed figure painting in an “alla prima” approach. Emphasis will be placed on composition, color and understanding light on form. It will include the process of producing appropriate values and edges to create mood and atmosphere. Zhaoming will demonstrate and provide individual instruction. Zhaoming’s understanding of classical techniques and superb draftsmanship has enabled him to paint in a loose manner, developing his own concept and personal style.
