Figure Painting - Hollis Dunlap

Event Date/Time

Feb 13, 2013 to Apr 17, 2013
1:00 pm until 4:00 pm

Description

Figure Painting - Hollis Dunlap

This class is designed to make the student more comfortable with painting the figure from life through the repetition of essential principles of color and composition. Its focus will be on creating a strong sense of 3-dimensional forms by looking closely at proportions, edges, light effects, and various methods of paint application. Instructor Hollis Dunlap will encourage a practical use of anatomy, focusing on major anatomical landmarks, allowing students to study the way that master painters model form and make color choices. Various aspects of the human body will be compared to basic geometric shapes to give the painting a convincing sense of form as well as giving the student more confidence in painting complex figurative work. Please visit  hollisdunlap.com to view selections of his work.

To register, please contact Hollis directly at (860) 389-5888 or email holldun@gmail.com

Dates: Wednesdays, 1 - 4pm, February 13–April 17

Instructor Bio: Hollis graduated from the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts in 1999. While at the Academy, he was the first student artist to be awarded First Prize at New York's National Arts Club exhibition two years in a row. Hollis was also the recipient of the Academy's John Stobart Fellowship, awarded each year to a graduating student in recognition of outstanding work. In the winter of 2001, Hollis studied at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland. Hollis is represented by galleries in New York, Boston and San Francisco.
