Garin Baker

Bodies in the sun, Figures in the Night

May 12th - May 18th, 2024

This unique workshop with New York-based artist Garin Baker unites figure painting and plein air. Mornings will be dedicated to the elements of figure painting with a live model, exploring anatomy, form, the subtleties of light on the figure, and the color tones of skin. In the afternoon, our instruction takes on new meaning as we paint outdoors in both daylight and evening light, occasionally including the model in the composition. You will explore how capturing a landscape is and is not like capturing a human “landscape,” each with its form and challenges. The human figure and the dramatic Mediterranean terrain will be your subjects in this singular experience.
At the end of each day, you’ll return to Baglio Custera, your boutique hotel among the olive groves, to recharge with a glass of wine by the pool. Every day of instruction includes demos and critiques. Baker’s warm style and critical eye makes him ideal for all painters, beginners, and expert, who can expect his personal attention. Materials list will be available upon registration. We can’t wait to see you!
