This special two-day workshop offers a unique opportunity to paint the figure (undraped and partially draped) in an outdoor landscape setting. This workshop is open to students working in watercolor, oil or pastel. Please note that the demonstrations will all be in watercolor.

Saturday: This session will cover the relationship between the figure and landscape; simplifying techniques for figure indication; and figure/landscape color theory.

Sunday: This session will cover more advanced techniques, and will include an extended pose and final critique.

This workshop will take place rain or shine.  In case of severe inclement weather, the class will be held in a studio.
