Through exercises in open/closed grisaille and color studies, the instructor introduces information and concepts on value and color relationships. We begin the workshop focusing on the construction of the figure with accurate linear proportions and well-calibrated value relationships that show correct structural and form development. Much of the emphasis at this stage is on accuracy as well as a strong gestural and organic quality that comes from observing and painting the figure directly on the canvas without a detailed drawing underneath it.

Once students gain proficiency in form development, we then shift our focus to color where basic principles and advanced understanding on color relationship and color calibration are introduced and delved with so as to enable students to accurately depict the complexion of the model and lighting situation.

The week begins with short poses and culminates in a 3-day pose that will give students the opportunity to bring together skills they learn in previous days. Poses range from 1 hour to 3 days. Instruction will include demos, lectures, and individual critique at students’ easels.

Studio Incamminati graduate and instructor JaFang Lu received the 2012 Leeway Foundation for Art and Change Grant. She holds a Bachelors of Art from the City College of New York University.
