Classical Figure 

April - June 2023

The Long Pose

Instructor: Elena Cantor

In the Long Pose Figure class, students use the sight size and comparison measurement techniques over multiple sessions to create drawings and paintings that are accurate in overall shape and true to life in value and color of a nude model.

Sketches are first made to explore the gesture, shape and values of the subject, then a final finished drawing of charcoal on Roma paper is completed before painting begins. If time permits, a historically based limited palette of oil paints is used on linen canvas to create a la prima paintings that reflect the overall light and shadows of the model's form. 

Students are encouraged to enroll in both Wednesday and Thursday afternoon long pose figure to have time enough to finish a detailed classical figure drawing or painting
