Characterful People

Acrylics & Oils. All abilities

Not a portrait, but more than just a few figures in a scene.


How do we tackle paintings were a figure, or group of figures, make up the main focus and bulk of a painting?

As with so many subjects, a few pointers, basic principles and techniques go a long way.

Amongst all the usual painting principles we will be focusing on creating figures that have gesture, movement and of course, character!


  • How to construct any figure at any scale, any position

  • Correct Proportions

  • How to capture gesture, movement and character

  • How light hits the human form

  • How to bring all this together into a working painting

p.s. It's not as hard as you might think!
