Description

Rendering the human figure is both vulnerable and intrinsically beautiful.  Join Donna Downey in this three-day workshop where you will learn to paint the movements of the body and explore expressive intentions and emotions through each mark of color. Your paintings will evoke a powerful, dreamlike quality.

My personal style is to render the body in abstracted block of colors and bold brushwork. The figures emerge as broken, but beautifully constructed and expressively raw.
