Robert Lemler is a respected artist and sought after teacher. He's a signature member of the Plein Air Painters of America (PAPA). Robert most often paints from life and seeks to interpret with each brushstroke the simplification, truth and honesty of his subjects. In his instructional video series, “Simplifying the Figure” you will have a deep look into Robert's Alla Prima process. He will be using a limited number of values and orchestrating the largest masses before painting the smaller shapes. This is often called the big tone approach. Robert has taught this process in his workshop classes for over twenty years. Whether you’re painting the figure from life or a photograph understanding these principles will help you achieve great results in your own figurative paintings.
