This course will expand upon your figure painting foundational skills, and introduce you to the loose style and expressive edge work of gesture figure painting. These lessons will help you understand color and color mixing in a more instinctual way, as well as help hone your understanding of edge work and your ability to push and design from your reference. This charismatic approach to figure painting is a wonderful way to “loosen up” your painting approach and work on expressive brushmanship.
