Instinctive Figure Painting with Lenin Delsol

The purpose of this class will be to develop your confidence and a way of seeing the figure as a whole, utilizing basic anatomical landmarks and a sense of comparative proportion. Together, we will examine the physical landmark relationships inherent in the human subjects we choose to paint and draw. 

During the course of the class, we will paint several poses—both figure and clothed figure, with practical demos being shown throughout. We will also discuss composition and apply those ideas to artworks created in the class.

Special Notes
Class meets in the northlight studio on the 3rd floor of the Palette & Chisel located at 1012 N. Dearborn Street in Chicago, Illinois.

From Sketch to Finish with Lenin Delsol

Painting a portrait from multiple sittings is crucial for artistic growth. Working this way, you will begin to notice subtle details and build rapport with your sitter—empowering you to paint a genuine likeness that reveals your subject’s inner spirit.

In this class, you can expect to paint three different portraits of a live model sitting in a two-week continued pose. Each session includes demos and a good deal of one-on-one instruction. You will receive online access to the pose images for working outside of class if you so choose.
