Watercolor and the Figure

This course concentrates on rendering the figure with

watercolor, and pen and ink. It is an all levels course

presuming no previous watercolor experience but it is

recommended that the student have had some life drawing

courses previously. It can be repeated for more in depth

study. We will develop in depth color studies, technique,

and rendering skills. These media are part of a long tradition

in drawing the figure. From the Renaissance with pen and

wash on colored papers, to the expressionists and photo

realists of our contemporary time, watercolor has a long and

varied tradition when it comes to rendering the figure and

we will look at several examples of all of these traditions. The

process asks one to slow down, plan, and give attention to

details and form, to think in terms of paint and expression.

Less a life drawing and anatomy class and more a painterly

exploration of the figure, we’ll review some traditional

techniques such as gesture and contour and then expand

on them in a variety of ways with each person developing

their own individual expressive manner. We will build from

the ground up with processes and materials as we proceed

with more advanced color studies. We will also concentrate

on exercises to enhance technique to provide a base for using

this medium well beyond the course. We’ll do in depth work

with various techniques including wet on wet and dry brush.

We’ll do advanced studies in color mixing and simultaneous

contrast as well as a variety of rendering techniques including

painterly and photo image styles. Students under 18 must

provide a signed permission letter from a parent or guardian.

assumes its gay attire.” —Virgil.

This spring we’ll stop to smell the roses and gaze up at the

trees. When the weather allows, we’ll move outside to paint.

from direct observation, memory, imagination and photo

references. Weekly lessons, demos, group critiques and
