Designing an Interior Painting with a Figure
Interior figure painting with wolf pelt by Andy Sjodin

This course is a must for a basic understanding on how to create an interior or room setting with a figure. Composition, perspective focal point, center of interest and lighting will be addressed. Emphasis will be on the preliminary elements of composing an interior with a figure. Students will be guided through the process of creating thumbnail sketches, preliminary drawings, and color studies. The end goal is to understand how to think through the different elements of picture making for the fluid and successful completion of a composition that deals with a complex pictorial space. Materials needed include: black pen, pencil, charcoal, pointer, eraser, sketch pad, drawing board (12" x 16" or so), pencil or charcoal paper (12" x 16" or so), small canvases, primed boards, or watercolor paper (12" x 16" or so), and the material you need to paint (oil or watercolor).
