Figure in the Landscape
July 17 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until July 18, 2019
July 17 – 18: Drawing and painting the figure has been an important part of the artistic practice of all serious artists throughout time. The task of understanding the human form is no small undertaking. In this 2 day class, we take the model out of the studio and into the landscape. Placing the model in the deep space of the outdoors gives us many new opportunities to explore compositional scale and relationships not to mention the added colors and always changing light as the sun moves across the sky. While there are many more considerations as we take the model outdoors, we will continue to concentrate on proportion.
Royce Deans was born and raised in the Chicago area and has lived in Traverse City for 30 years. He graduated from the American Academy of Art in Chicago. The focus of his work is split mainly between painting the figure and the landscape. When he is not painting in Leelanau County somewhere or working in his studio, he leads art retreats with the ArtisTTable. These retreats take artists on adventures to far- flung destinations in Europe and beyond to paint.
