One day Workshops

Saturday 11th August 2018

Figures but bigger!

All mediums & abilities

All though people often shy away from painting figures they are great fun and a very rewarding subject matter!!


With a few pointers, tricks and tips hopefully you will feel encouraged to paint more of them.

We will be looking at the a figure, or multiple figures, being the main focal point of the painting.  This could be any setting from figures on a beach, market scenes or generally out and about,  to a posed figure, or even a nude for those of you feeling adventurous!!

As well as the usual painting foundations and basics we will be looking specifically at:

  • Basic anatomy and why it's important

  • Proportions and constructing a figure

  • Lines of motion, even in stationery figures

  • Creating form

  • Looking at how light hits a figure

  • What to do with the face at any scale

  • How to place your figures in the scene and what to look for
