Assignment 1

Anatomy Study of the Torso

After watching the accompanying video, paint an alla prima study of a torso from a model using knowledge gained from previous assignments. A limited color palette should be employed, and the study should be painted on a canvas between 12x16” and 18x24”. Work in the method of the master being studied, and utilize brush application to achieve the same stylization. 


If not done so already, it is strongly advised to paint a master copy of a torso by this artist before working with the model.
