Painting the Figure Indoors and Outside
September 20-22, Tuesday – Thursday, 9am-4pm
Oil or medium of choice – all levels
Hone your figure painting skills. In this workshop we will work on capturing the essence of the model, drawing (with paint), paying attention to the negative spaces, value relationships and edges. This is a great time for working with a limited palette, if the student so desires. There will be instructor demos and discussions, with questions welcomed. This class will be fun with lots of personal critique and interaction with the instructor. Embrace the challenge of painting the model in the studio as well as outdoors.

About the Instructor
Pam Ingalls loves to paint. Raised in Spokane, Washington, she was first inspired by her parents, artists Richard and Marjorie Ingalls. She studied art at the Accademia Di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy, and earned an art degree from the art department that her father began at Gonzaga University in Spokane. After exploring a few side paths—among them, walking 7000 miles for peace and building a house—Pam returned to her painting passion under the mentorship of Russian Impressionist, Ron Lukas. Her widely collected, award-winning work has been exhibited throughout the United States, Europe, and Africa, and juried into more than 125 national and international shows.
