Figure in oil paint

April’s demonstration was how to paint a figure in oils. Lewis Hazelwood Horner, who is a professional artist, showed us how he set about creating a figure using a very limited palette. He uses sandor low odour medium and yellow ochre/cadmium yellow, alizarin crimson lake, titanium white/zinc white, ultramarine blue/cobalt. Using Andrew as a model he very quickly got the stance down. he described it as being like a piece of marble that you just chip away at. Below are some pictures of the work as it went along.
