Quick Painting Workshop

Ever been curious about painting the figure but get turned off by the thought of a complicated, drawn-out process?

Saturday/Sunday March 30-31, 2019


Cura Studios, Orange


In this workshop we’ll take lengthy, traditional methods and cut straight to the chase. Working from fantastic, nude models you’ll get to experience the freeing effects of working fast and direct, while honing key skills for creating powerful images.


Let master instructor Ron Brown help build your confidence in rapid figure indication as he guides you through the most fun you’ll have had in a long time!


You’ll learn to:

  • Capture the essence not the fluff

  • Maximize your time for each pose

  • Arrange your palette for success

  • Make bold value statements

  • Choose solid color schemes

What supplies will we need?

Here is a link to some supply recommendations.

Can I work digitally?

Absolutely. Just be aware that the instruction will be geared toward oil painting. But Ron is well-versed in painting digitally, too.

It’s been a while since I last worked from the figure how should I prepare?

Don't worry about it. We all have to begin again at one point or another. Doing some gesture drawings is always a great way to get back into the swing of things.

I’m traveling on one of the days, can I pay for just a single session.

Due to the limited seats and involved model booking fees we prefer you purchase the whole workshop. You may split the WS with a friend however.

"Ron Brown's Quick Paint Workshop is perfect for anyone who wants to dive deeper into exploring the medium and capturing expressive figure painting. The "go for it" attitude he brings to the canvas is infectious and before long I felt a true sense of adventure when exploring materials I may have been unfamiliar with. I can't recommend Ron's workshops enough."
