Class description

Painting a portrait from multiple sessions is essential for an artist’s growth. Through repeated observation, we begin to perceive subtle details and build rapport with the portrait sitter. This familiarity will eventually guide us to compose a genuine likeness inspired by a sense of the subject’s spirit and character.

Throughout the course, as we paint two to three pictures of different poses, there will be a good deal of one-on-one instruction with several demos including how to use photos to finish a painting. Each student will have digital access to images taken from their spot for work outside of class time if they so choose.

Continuing Pose Painting Class

By Classes, Teaching Schedule

Starting in May, I’m teaching another session of my class, From Sketch to Finish, at the Palette & Chisel in Chicago. The class meets from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm on Wednesdays over the course of 6 weeks. Throughout the class, we will work from the same model in a continuing pose with the goal of completing a finished painting by the end.

Incidentally, it’s the same method that I used to create the main oil painting featured on my flyer below, The Strings of Time, which I’m honored to announce will be exhibited in the Oil Painters of America 26th Annual National Juried Exhibition of Traditional Oils this May.

I hope you’ll join me at the P&C. It’s a Chicago treasure. Register online or call the Palette & Chisel at (312) 642-4400, Monday thru Friday 10:30 am–5:30 pm.

If you have any questions about the class in May or would like to attend a class in the evening or on a weekend day, please contact me.

Date: May 3 – June 7, 2017 
Meets:
 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
in the P&C’s northlight studio, 3rd floor 
Tuition:
$280.00
payable to the Palette & Chisel plus a $50 model fee (cash or check) payable to Lenin Delsol at the first class session 
Level:
All Levels Welcome, some drawing and painting experience helpful. 
Details:
In From Sketch to Finish with Lenin Delsol, we will paint a single painting over the duration of the class. Continuing with a painting is important as a tool of study, enabling the student to see more and, in turn, paint more of what they see. With emphasis on drawing and artistic anatomy, the way the figure occupies any position will be better understood.
Required Supplies: A list will be emailed to you upon registration. If you would like to see the supply list before registering, please email the P&C office.
