🎨 Class Description

The Live Class Color and Light: The Figure in Environment with Renae Wang teaches you how to paint draped figures within different lighting environments.

This Live Class serves as an introduction to creating figurative work with a narrative approach.

You will learn how to depict the different effects of light on color through painting the figure.

You will paint using a variety of light sources, color palettes and compositional devices, outside of the traditional studio setting.

While this class is primarily taught in oil, students can use acrylic as a substitute.

Meet Your Instructor

Renae Wang is a California-based artist working in oil. Her subject matter focuses on nocturnal landscapes and “non-places” like gas stations, diners, and airports. Her work is characterized by vibrant colors under artificial lights and immersive compositions with first-person points-of-view. These nocturnal paintings explore the universal human condition of isolation, as well as its relationship with public spaces of transience. The viewer either becomes the one observing a solitary figure or the one being isolated.
