Go Figure! – Figure Painting with Daphne Confar

Go Figure! – Figure Painting with Daphne Confar

All Levels

Medium: Oil and Acrylic

Daphne Confar

In this class, Daphne Confar will introduce students how to determine the "feel" of the figure painting, what to include or exclude, and how to think about composition. Students will learn how to apply tonal underpaintings to establish values, push the lights and darks, and create a monochromatic version of the finished painting. The class will also learn how to finish the painting by using a limited palette of oil color to glaze over the underpainting. There will be individual attention and direction throughout the class. This is a fun class where Daphne will teach you her unique technique and approach to figure painting. (This class will include a model fee directly paid to the instructor)
