Moving beyond carrot people, this workshop will focus on depicting the gesture of people doing every day activities.  Getting the proportions and action of the figure properly placed in your painting makes such a difference in the narrative.  Shelley and Bruce will start with the basics of working from life and capturing the gesture, body type, color, light and shadow and how to keep the focal point of your work focused on the figure.
