12 sessions recommended to complete a finished drawing.
In the Long Pose Figure Class, students use the sight size technique over multiple sessions to create drawings and paintings that are accurate in overall shape and true to life in value and color.
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. 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.
