Figure in Environment (Live Class)

In this 15-week Live Class, NMA instructor Renae Wang will focus on depicting draped figures within different environments. You will have the opportunity to study a variety of light sources, color palettes, and compositional devices outside of the traditional studio setting. Renae's assignments cover figure painting in artificial lighting, such as warm and cool interior light, and natural lighting like midday, overcast, and sunset. This Live Class serves as an introduction to creating figurative work with a narrative approach. Renae primarily uses oil paint, but you can use acrylic as a substitute.
