Some may question the purpose of setting a limited time-frame for figure painting studies, but artist Craig Nelson explains the benefits. It allows you to become more decisive, focus on what matters, and embrace the imperfections rather than dwelling on capturing every detail perfectly. With Craig's instructive advice, you will learn about color mixing, use of brush strokes, and how to use a palette to its fullest potential. By working your way through 3 separate paintings, you will be able to capture gestures, depict faces, and add accents to your figure.
