In this class we are exploring and extension structure and form in portraiture. IN term 2 we looked at structure and started exploring colour . Interm 3 we will be developing paintings and then leading into more experimental approaches. Reference will be made to artists who work with this genre. A number of techniques will be explored including looking at nature with an emphasis on patterning and compositional approaches of the micro and macro.
Embracing the limitations of the Zoom platform we will be working mainly (but not exclusively) from photos. Some supplied images will be supplied and you will be encouraged to work from your own reference sources.
Activities and discussions are aimed at the extension of concepts and techniques. While online, participants work on their artwork, join in the discussion, and have the chance of one-on-one discussions with the tutor about the progress of their work.
Materials: A list of materials is included in the “Materials, Setup and safety” PDF which can be downloaded from the booking site.
