Robert Lemler most often paints from life and seeks to interpret with each brushstroke the simplification, truth, and honesty of his subjects. During this three-day Workshop, students will paint the portrait, nude and costumed model. We will work indoors exploring both warm and cool artificial light sources. Our studies will be alla prima, with each day offering a new subject.  

Through lecture, demonstration and individualized help, Robert will offer an understanding of the general principles of painting that will inform your considerations regarding value, color, and edge relationships.

Other topics include:

  • the importance of identifying the color and strength of the light source
  • simplifying one’s value and color interpretation
  • designing your paintings, posing and lighting the subject, and more.

Whether you’re painting the figure from life or a photograph understanding these principles will help you achieve great results in your own figurative paintings. 

Please join us for a fun and informative three days of painting the figurative subject.

  • Day 1 :  demonstration / portrait
  • Day 2 :  simplified anatomy and the nude model
  • Day 3 :  costumed model
