Join London Drawing Group for a one-off special webinar session as we introduce you to the age-old practice of Life-Painting- IN ISOLATION!

Painting from the model can be difficult to navigate, balancing colour, tone, proportions, perspective, composition, and emotional narrative. Through this class we will begin to explore the dazzling (and often confusing) world of painting in COLOUR, with reference to master colourists such as Matisse, Alice Neel, Freud and a host of amazing contemporary artists, all whilst using yourself as the model!

Understanding the function of colour in painting is one of the most crucial skills that a painter can master, a grasp of colour can change the mood, atmosphere, emotional content of a painting, and an understanding of how colours work together underpins paintings of all kinds, from the most expressive to the most detailed and classical. Through this class we will be using a limited colour palette of Red, Blue, Yellow, Brown and White, and exploring colour mixing from the ground up, allowing students of all levels to to grips with the importance of understanding colour within painting.

Working from yourself as model, or a friendly volunteer from your household, this is a class that will suit all levels, from complete beginner to practicing artist, and will cover basic tuition in creating a composed, measured drawing with accurate tonal values, with lessons and techniques that can be transferred to any method of working.
