I’m mixing things up a bit by painting the figure occasionally now.  I need to find some models, or a group of artists to paint with.  Most of the group’s I’ve found are the traditional drawing sessions, with lots of short poses, followed by 20 minute long poses. I need longer than that to paint!

Since I didn’t have a model for this, I found this image by Fred Goudin to paint from.  Enjoy!

  1. Please let us know if you find a good group for figure painting in the area. I would be interested, too.

    I currently attend a kind of weekly figure painting workshop (nudes), i.e. with some (rather minimalistic) instruction attached, in SF. It’s three-hours sessions, usually three or two such sessions per pose/model. Costs about $400 per semester. In case you might be interested, it’s here: http://www.larryrobinson.net (but he doesn’t offer this class in summer, only for fall and winter semesters).

  2. Thanks, Lena, good tip. That’s at least closer to what I’m looking for (long poses). I don’t mind the “not in summer” thing, because I like to paint plein air in summer anyway.
