Using models we will pose them, with and without accessories, the studies developed will be turned into painting by transferring the compositions onto a canvas. As well as posing the figures to create the composition, a painting will be created around the figures. The models will be posed by the students and a large composition will be painted around the figures directly onto the wall or a large canvas. This will be an opportunity to paint very big and to explore the ramifications of scale. The painting can become a landscape , a dream-scape or something completely abstract but will be informed by the presence and scale of a live model around which the painting will be created.This larger work will also feed back into the students personal compositions.
