"Expressive Painting from a Model: Early Stages" with Geoff Farnsworth, Contemporary Fine Art Painter
Geoff Farnsworth will demonstrate how he approaches creating a figurative expressive painting from a model. Using oils, he will show how he sets up the canvas by laying in the figure with line work and tonal areas, with a special concern for colour and edges. From there he develops the piece by brushing in the paint and wiping it off, all the while instructing how he melds observation and classic portraiture with expression and abstraction.
Members are encouraged to bring sketchbooks if they would like to draw along, and are welcome to take photographs throughout the demonstration.
