Charles Hu is a figurative artist and notable art instructor with over a decade of experience teaching figure, anatomy, and head drawing and painting.
In this class Charles will teach a direct, confident approach to painting the figure in oils that leverages both graphic and constructive elements to create works with appeal, impact, and solidity.
Charles will begin with black and white color only, focusing on value grouping, edge control and composition. Then he will transition to a limited color palette (Zorn's palette).
Charles uses a limited palette so you don’t get overwhelmed with the full spectrum of color while learning the basics. A limited palette also helps to keep color harmonized and makes it easier to understand color mixing while still focusing on value relationship.
Two or more colors will be added to the palette each week, and by the end of class, you will be exploring a full palette.
Charles will be covering Value, Color Intensity, Color Temperature, Edge, Color mixing, and Paint Application.
There will be demo and a lecture along with exercises that will help you understand each week’s topic.
Charles will be using oil paint as his main source material. Water color, acrylic, and pastel are also welcome, as Charles has taught these mediums in the past.
This class is all about observation, analyzation and putting down the correct relationship.
This class is available as an in-person experience only.
You will be provided with beautiful high-resolution Draw This!™ reference images of world-class models to work from.
