Yesterday, I completed 7 of the 8 Saturday sessions of Huihan Liu's Figure Painting workshop. Many professions require continuing education for their credientials to be renewed. As a full-time oil painter, I continue to seek improvement by taking workshops from respected artists. The monetary investment has been worth the price on many levels.
Huihan's class featured the same male model for the first 4 weeks. We have one week left painting the same female model. After his demonstration on a certain portion of the painting, students then work on the same area in their own painting. My take-aways so far have been punching colors even further and the need for a well executed drawing. Soft edges have always been important to me, but by watching Huihan Liu's use brush strokes, I've refined the process even further with the point of my brush.
