Expressive Painting with Ryan Ahern
Learn the traditional methods for oil painting the human figure in this two week workshop with Ryan Ahern. You’ll be introduced to the properties of oil paint whilst learning to render the human form in an expressive style, working from a life model and dramatic sets of light. This workshop will be sure to cover methodology such as the fat-over-lean rule, fugitive pigments, identifying the properties of different mediums (turps, oms, linseed, liquin etc) and colour mixing as well as best practice for ensuring your paintings are archival quality. Suitable for beginners and artists looking to refresh their knowledge. This course is Part 2 in Ryan’s latest figurative series, progressing from Part 1: Expressive Sketching. Completing Part 1 is suggested prior to commencing this workshop however, it is not a prerequisite.
