Here are a few notes that I found in my notebook after the class:
1. If a painting isn't going well, try doing the opposite of what you see going on. Is it too soft? Add impact. Is it tight? Loosen it up. Dull? Try a shot of color.
2. Paintings can be thought of as cakes-- you need the "cake" or the structure before you can add the "icing", or the flourishes at the end.
3. He thinks of his paintings as drawings; his work is very linear. In the end stages, he brings his lines together and softens areas that need it.
4. His goal is to suggest rather than render his subject, because he finds this technique more interesting to look at.
There was so much to learn in this workshop! I recommend Kevin's workshops to anyone interested in learning to paint the figure more abstractly, or anyone interested in taking their figure painting to the next level!
