LIVE OAK SENIOR CENTER
PORTRAITS AND FIGURES IN AN ENVIRONMENT
Student artwork presently exhibited at the Live Oak Senior Center
Samples of a figure in an interior and the process of painting a portrait in a landscape.
Drawing or painting a portrait from life or from a photograph is always a mixture of challenge,
excitement and fascination. Our hope is that we will succeed to go beyond just likeness and express
the emotion behind it.
In these six classes we will focus on portraits as well as figures and their placement in a landscape, interior, etc.
We will work on harmonizing the light and colors of the environment with the portrait or figure(s).
A lot of time will be spent on color mixing.
For those of us who would like to paint landscapes without portraits or figures the focus can be switched to
just that and the landscape can be enhanced as the primary interest.
The main medium will be watercolor but we will also be experimenting with ink pens, color pencils and
other water soluble mediums to accomplish expressive and loose art and acquire new ideas and inspirations.
New students are welcome as the course is designed for all levels.
There will be inspirational Hand Outs but students are encouraged to bring in photographs of loved ones as well.
Wed. Jan. 22, 29, Feb. 5, 12, 19 (no class 2/26 and 3/4) and Mar. 11, times: 2:00 - 5:00 pm.
