In week four, you will learn how to paint the torso and the arms while paying attention to their anatomy landmarks. Instructor Joseph Todorovich will talk about the nuances that you should pay attention to while composing the figure. You will watch him develop with care the second focal point of the painting; the hand. In addition, Joseph will teach you how to suggestively paint the breasts to only provide enough information for the viewers to interpret the rest.
