Tutor – Jemma Derbyshire

Inspired by the Bay Area Figurative Painters of the mid 20th C (including Richard Diebenkorn, Paul Wonner and Nathan Oliviera) this 2 day workshop will explore the abstract values found in the human figure and the space they occupy.  Working from a model and set up in the studio, we will consider how to simplify the the human form into a more abstracted language, while still retaining the the figurative voice.  We will look at colour, shape and composition beginning with monochrome materials, before moving into colour and paint.  We will create a number of studies, before working up in scale to a finished piece of work.
