About This Class

A Quick Look

In this class I will share my thoughts on capturing figures & people in their natural setting. To do this I hit the pavement to create several plein air sketches, and take reference photos to bring back to the studio. Once the sketches are complete I will paint a finished painting based on my experiences.

Why This Class Is Important For You

Often artists paint subjects that simply do not reflect their life & environment. Simply put the art is a false representation because there's no personal connection to the subject(s). The process I will share in this class allows me to connect to my subjects thus the painting & subjects are true to my life & personal style. This has a major impact on how inspired I am to paint at the easel and the results usually speak for themselves.
