Long-Pose Figure Painting

In this 10-week course, Joseph will teach you his complete process of making long-pose figure paintings – from initial ideas and exploration, to making studies, to the final painting. You will learn how to direct and work with professional models to achieve a suitable pose. Then, you will practice creating value and color studies as the two prepping steps for a painting. Afterward, Joseph will take you through his decision-making process while painting the models from life on large-scale canvases. Since this course was filmed during a live workshop, you will get the chance to tune in to his critiques of students' works and assignments. After this course, you will have established a skillset for figure painting and strengthened your design sensibility, which will help you create impactful figure paintings of your own.
