Overview: The Objective of the workshop is to introduce the participants to Alexey Steele's approach to painting a figure, based on his legacy of Russian Academic Tradition. Alexey will focus on his approach to working with live model as well as describe a vital integrated relationship of Form, Tone and Color essential in a successful execution of any painting and particularly figure. It shall encourage participants to study these three elements in depth after participation in the workshop.

There are a substantially diverse number of wonderful approaches to conveying life-like visual image shared through various workshops, books and systems by some remarkable artists of our time. Some of them perceived as radically different from one another, yet in fact outside "techniques" they all convey same core principles. Those "integrating" principles behind various individual approaches will be the main theme of the workshop.

The central principle this workshop is intended to demonstrate and to train its participants in - is the key function of Value in connecting Form to Color. 
Classes consist of demo, live painting and critique.

List of the supplies will be send upon registration.
