Developing Figurative Narrative: content, form and color
Elizabeth Glaessner, Gerald Lovell
Challenge yourself to think critically about the potential for narrative in your figurative work and the ways to enhance a sense of story within a painting. This course examines the distinctive ability for a painting to ask questions, convey mood and character and cause the viewer to be spellbound by the wonder of visual storytelling. These challenges are accessed and problem solved through painterly decisions regarding form, pattern, brush strokes, mark-making, color choice, gesture and other formal concerns that are at the core of this exciting narrative painting workshop.
