Live model painting

Détail du cours

The objective of this course, centered on the live model, is to allow students to acquire rigorous bases of painting, then to progressively develop a personal work.

This course focuses on observation, so that the student learns to situate a form in the middle of others, to simplify it in order to be able to read it, memorize it and finally to reproduce it by passing from three to two dimensions. The corrections are made according to the level of each student whether he is a beginner or an experienced artist. Naturally, the specificities of each technique, are chosen by the student, the questions of proportions, shortening, the rendering of light and space, and and artistic preoccupations by referring to the works of the past as well as those of today.

Alternating poses of different lengths of time will allow the student to deepen the work of the gesture. The long times (several hours) allow an analytical study of the forms, a more elaborate work as well as it poses the question of the composition. With the short times (a few minutes even a few seconds), it is a more intuitive more intuitive realization which is worked.
