A Technique Takeaway at Winslow Art Center. Aimee Erickson will walk us through a classic method of describing form using solid shadow shapes, a simple color structure and modeling only in the light. This is one of those things you could do five hundred times and still learn something from it. Register here. 

Figure Painting: Lessons from the Masters

ONLINE. Tuesdays, March 1 - March 29, 2022. 9 am to noon Pacific time. 

Hosted by the Scottsdale Artists School. We will take a gestural approach to painting the figure, using historical paintings as reference (instead of a model).
