In this session Jesse strives to impress how important studying the human figure is when learning how to paint. By imagining the oil or acrylic as sculptural material and using hands to push and pull it in directional marks, he shows us a way of moulding a bodily form onto the paper. Veg oil and rags for cleaning hands essential for those who use oil paint!
