The Painterly Figure: Loosening Up approaches to figurative painting

Interested in painting the figure but want a more painterly approach?  Cath will demonstrate her approach to alla prima painting of the figure using oil paints.  You will learn how to loosen up your mark-making, control use of impasto, paint wet-on-wet and work in a more gestural manner.  She will also introduce some of her use of non-traditional materials such as spray paint, and alternative surfaces, such as polyester.  Cath will show how she situates her figures within a landscape setting and controls balance between figure and background.
