Painting the Figure and Portrait with Expression.

In this workshop we’ll paint from a live nude model and also focus on a portrait head with a clothed model.  The class will start with a loose, quick acrylic underpainting. The acrylic paint dries within a few minutes, making it ideal to work back into with oils.  On the first morning there will be a  demonstration, then the class will paint. Painting over an underpainting allows for more building up of paint so that parts can be scraped and wiped away to expose areas of the underpainting.  This lends itself to an expressive, more abstract approach, while creating an interplay between tones, forms and color.  In addition to brushes, we’ll be using plastic scrapers to add and remove paint.

Bio: 

David Shevlino studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (certificate ’84) and the University of Pennsylvania (BFA ’92).  His work has been featured in national publications and he has exhibited his work and taught workshops throughout the U.S.  He has also produced a series of videos and DVDs about his artwork and painting methods.

 

My exposure to art began as a teenager growing up in NJ near NYC.  I began making trips to art museums in NYC when I was 15 and developed a love of traditional figurative painting. As a youth I found myself especially drawn to the old masters. Those early trips to the museum instilled in me a love of craft and a sense of where painting comes from.  For most of my artistic career I’ve tried to take what I’ve learned about traditional painting and mold it into something I can call my own, which presently means exploring the place between traditional figurative painting and abstraction.
