Watts has developed and honed over the past 30 years at WattsAtelier of the arts in Encinitas Ca. The first 5 days will emphasize portrait and the second 5 days the Figure. Students can work on portrait the entire 10 days or Figure or 5 days of each. Jeff is known as one of the foremost authorities on the Reilly method and will walk the students through some of his most effective and tried methods for Gesture drawing/Painting, how to successfully paint from photo’s and Master Studies, as well as how to tackle the longer live model sessions. Emphasis will be placed on exploring these various modalities of study through structured exercises throughout the 10 days.
