In this 3-day workshop the focus will be on painting the figure with more accuracy and confidence.

Working from a live model and from photos, Ilene will demonstrate daily, with emphasis on value, drawing, edges, composition and color. A dedicated instructor, Ilene is all too aware of the frustrations of working from life and the discipline it requires. She is an effective teacher who does not hold back.
