Portrait and Figure in Watercolor: Curiosity and Awareness

Brian Shure

Tuition $1,195
Code D0103-23

Bring the face and figure to life with the transparency and immediacy of watercolor, an extremely expressive media that can also be highly controlled. With daily demonstrations and a series of simple and accessible studio exercises, students develop skills controlling resoluble colors, reserving and pulling back highlights, and maintaining brilliant and delicate tones that are unique to water-based media. We work from life as well as photographic sources in this deceivingly direct paint medium, capturing the essence of the portrait and figure by taking time to look and record what we see.
