In week seven, instructor Joseph Todorovitch will teach you how to begin a painting focusing on gesture and construction, as well as getting a strong simple block-in with a good color key. You will learn how to resist the urge to add detail too early, and to trust in the process of posterization. Lastly, you will practice adding transitional tones to core shadows, while keeping value and color relationships clearly defined.

Throughout this course, you’ll have access to the NMA community for feedback and critiques to improve your work as you progress.
