Figure Painting in Oils with Lenin Delsol

By Classes, Teaching Schedule, Workshops

New class announcement! I am teaching a brand-new course at the Palette & Chisel called Figure Painting in Oils with Lenin Delsol. It is a short format class which will take place on Wednesday, August 18, 2021, and Wednesday, August 25, 2021, from 9 am to 1 pm (CDT).

Using a live model, we will study figurative anatomy, pictorial composition, and color. In addition, the importance of accurate drawing when figure painting will be emphasized. This mini-class is a good option for anyone looking to brush up on their figure painting skills or learn another way of painting the figure.

We will meet in the Northlight studio on the third floor of the historic Palette & Chisel building in Chicago, Illinois.

Learn more or register now on Palette & Chisel’s website. You do not need to be a Palette & Chisel member to take classes there. 

Contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you there!

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 
 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
in the P&C’s northlight studio, 3rd floor 
payable to the Palette & Chisel plus a $50 model fee (cash or check) payable to Lenin Delsol at the first class session 
All Levels Welcome, some drawing and painting experience helpful. 
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.
