Description: This course in painting from the human figure involves the direct (alla prima) application of paint to interpret form and space, and builds on the skills acquired in the painting, drawing and 3D modeling courses from the previous semesters. Working from rapid as well as sustained poses students will be given the opportunity to develop painting, compositional and design skills using a limited palette and approaches that include preparatory underpainting techniques. Students will be expected to research painting independently, and a variety of delivery techniques will be used.
