Past Masterclasses

Working directly with a model in both clothed and nude poses, students explored how a painting must first and foremost be a design, before it becomes a story.  Beginning with a discussion of the key elements in picture making, including the importance of locating the Artist’s idea or vision, Hugo helped the students discover how these thoughts are expressed in the shape of a design.

Each day began with Hugo giving a talk about the paintings of the Masters, encouraging the students to relate to the images in new ways, discussing the ways different artist’s placed the model within their environment.

This course was held at the beautiful Stoke Lodge in Bristol, Hugo is now looking forward to giving more Masterclasses in life painting in Dorset where he recently made his new home.
