Abstracting the Figure

Using classical approaches of contour and construction drawing, we will begin by making preparatory studies for the paintings to come. We’ve all seen paintings of a nude standing, or a model sitting on a stool. How do we turn these studies into dynamic paintings that go beyond the academic cliché? This term is about taking our painting beyond the reference and making them our own. By binding the classical techniques of draftsmanship with strong design we will untether ourselves from the limitations of painting only what we see in front of us.
