 Join Jeff Watts for this drawing and painting workshop.  We will explore concepts essential to mastering the art of figure and portrait drawing as it relates to painting and vice versa.  This workshop will be structured in such a way that we will be drawing for 3 hours in the morning session and 3 hours of painting in the afternoon.  We will also provide a model for 3 hours in the evening for those who wish to apply the days learning.  Emphasis will be placed on utilizing the Watts Atlelier Abstraction system used to navigate both the figure and head in drawing and painting.  We will delve deeper into the tonal method of drawing and how it adapts to painting during this extensive intimate 6 day workshop.  This is a truly great opportunity for anyone looking to strengthen their proficiency in both drawing and painting.  Some of the topics we will cover are as follows; abstraction system(Reilly Method), fundamental anatomy for portrait and figure, quick sketch both head and figure, gesture painting head and figure, 3 hour studies, head and figure, and master studies.  Look forward to seeing you in.
