Painting the Figure Outdoors with Bridget Ertelt

with Bridget Ertelt


Friday, 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM Saturday & Sunday, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

This weekend is bound to be fun! It combines two of Bridget’s favorite things…figure painting and plein air painting. Based on feedback from last summer, and extra day will be added to this workshop for a total of 3 days. Students will spend the weekend painting the clothed figure outdoors in natural light. In this class we will be doing exercises to capture gesture, large value/color proportions, and achieving believable light effect (sunny day vs. gray day, etc.) using value and color temperature. Perspective and how to relate the figure to its surrounding environment will be discussed. The class will start with short poses and progressively lengthen the poses throughout the weekend. Studying the figure is a great way to increase your understanding of how light affects all form outdoors. Class will be taught in oils. Students of all skill levels are welcome! Some previous drawing experience may be helpful

We will be practicing safety by social distancing and wearing masks during group interactions. Please contact Bridget at or The Atelier if you have any questions. Materials and class information sent upon payment.

Payment plan available: $150 deposit plus 2 payments of $68.33, paid every four weeks. Final payment of $68.34.
