Thought you might be interested in a new painting instructional DVD by artist Quang Ho from Denver, Colorado.
In particular, check out Series 3 which focuses on figure drawing.
Series 1: "Arrangement with Amaryllis: Painting the Still Life with Light and Shadow.” Ho takes viewers through his entire thought process for painting a still-life arrangement: from setup, to lighting, to systematically breaking down the painting as logically as possible from block-in to finish.
Series 2: "Nuts and Bolts - The Essential information for the artist” brings together nearly 30 years of Ho’s experience searching, learning, and teaching as an artist. In these videos, Ho takes the viewer through a logical and systematic breakdown of the essential vocabulary and visual tools associated with painting. Basic knowledge regarding the use of oils, medium, brushes, and canvas, will be discussed for the beginner. Students of all levels will acquire the understanding and vocabulary necessary to make real progress with their own work.
Series 3: “Painting the Figure in an Interior: Painting with Local Tones” focuses on the richness of tones or values as the concept for building the structure of the painting—as opposed to the shapes of light and the shadow in the still-life videos. Degas, Van Gogh, Fechin, and many other artists worked in this approach.
Ho will also be sharing tips from his “Nuts & Bolts” lecture during American Artist’s Weekend with the Masters Workshop & Conference in September 2009. Don't miss it!
