This workshop will focus on the use of values, expressive and minimal brushstrokes, layering/glazing, and "loosening up" your paintings. Part of the time will be spent working on "loosely" painting the human figure. Some (minimal is fine!) previous drawing and/or any kind of painting experience is recommended.
