John Atura

This class will focus on the process of taking the drawn figurative image and transforming it through painting by using the long pose and direct observation of the figure in its environment. By drawing with the intent of making the transition into painting, students will translate values into color while limiting the use of line in favor of analyzing the model in terms of tone, mass, and shape. Students will be encouraged to work abstractly toward refining a representational image. Human anatomy and proportion will be addressed with an emphasis on placing it within a strong overall composition. The premise is that improving your drawing will improve your painting.
