Video Length: 240 minutes

 

Painting from the live model requires all the concentration and expertise one can bring to the easel. Join Sherrie McGraw as she leads you through the process of interpreting the pose of the model into a sensitive and compelling image in paint on the canvas.

 


If you've never had the opportunity to attend one of Sherrie McGraw's workshops, this Painting video, and the Drawing video above, will give you a sense of the experience. Observe this superb draftsman and painter in action. She explains the differences between drawing and painting through dozens of gesture drawings and a long drawing (in the Drawing video above), and finally, how to paint from the live model.

Learn how to pose the model and how differently the lighting affects the drawing vs. the painting. Both these videos are a must-have for every serious student of figure painting.
