Painting the Nude

Explore the timeless techniques of Classical Realism as you learn to depict the nude figure in oil paint. Tone your canvas for a unifying glow, and find out how to simplify the complexities of the body into manageable planes and shapes. Delve into value, color and dimension with effective exercises in light and shadow, and create a tonal road map for your composition. Watch artist Kristin Kunc work off a live studio model as you join along, painting section by section to fill out the nude figure with beautifully blended skin tones. Create realistic contours and muscles using value shifts, and paint a dynamic, soft-focus background that illuminates your entire composition.
