NEW - The Figure Simplified
Learn a method that destroys the complexity of the figure and gives you the skills to successfully paint the figure every time you're in the studio.
Simplify how you see the figure
The complexity of bone, muscle and skin can overwhelms us and stop us from even attempting to paint the figure. Luzdy will break down the figure and teach you to see it in terms of lines and shapes so that you can successfully paint the figure even if you've never tried it before.
This class is about learning to paint the human figure in a simplified, creative way, from beginning sketches of lines, shapes, and tones, to building the body form with expressive brushstrokes and abstract body colors that Luzdy is known for. With the new methods you'll learn in this class you'll be able to paint a variety of poses without learning anatomy.

MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR
Luzdy Rivera is a bold portrait and figurative artist, from Puerto Rico, living in Massachusetts, USA. Luzdy's art is driven by human emotions through gestures, poses and expressions. Her use of color is intentionally bold, with visible texture, marks and brushstrokes. "I strive to create expressive and emotive art that is so much more than what I, as the artist, can see and feel, but more about what I can make others see, think and feel."
Luzdy has been a mentor with Bold School since 2021 and is a graduate of our premiere class, Bold Color Bootcamp.
