During this class you will learn techniques for painting quickly and accurately. We will concentrate on identifying the big relationships within your paintings. Each day will be spent working from the model, both in the studio and outside. Working with gesture the first day, we will begin by studying proportion and structure. As we progress through the week, the environment will take priority, searching how to place the figure in context with the scene. Expect to paint numerous small studies each day.

About Kim English

Kim English was born in 1957 in Omaha, Nebraska and raised in rural Colorado. He graduated at the Rocky Mountain School of Art, where he has also joined the faculty, and he now teaches at the Denver Art Students League. His work has been widely exhibited.

Mr. English says, “Immediacy is important not only because it is the nature of people, but for me, it is the most instinctive way to paint. The process is like a performance…”

Kim receives his inspiration traveling throughout the world, capturing images of everyday life. His years of experience teaching anatomy are apparent in the way he captures the figure so beautifully in so many of his paintings. He is known for his great approach to light and shadow. You may see some of his work featured in the book entitled, Figure Drawing Workshop by Carole Katchen.  He is an attentive, gifted painter and a great teacher who is happy to impart his knowledge.
