I had a great time chatting with artist Natalia Fabia in California. Natalia paints realist oil paintings with a high level of technical skill. Her subject matter is predominantly strong women viewed through the lens of punk rock glam.
She has been featured in magazines like Juxtapoz, New York Arts magazine, and Hi Fructose to name a few. Her work has been shown in numerous solo and group shows. We talk about yoga, hookers, pop art, knitting, ladybugs and a lot more . . .

I'm teaching another class in LA at Kline Academy of Fine Art!
+Sparking a Narrative Composition + with Natalia Fabia
Saturdays 2 - 5pm
Begins May 21st, 2016!!

Learn the process of bridging figure painting into personal narrative work. Create interesting figure composition and elements inspired by classical & contemporary painting design while incorporating individual story and style. Open to all levels. 

We will do a photoshoot first week -where we focus on 3 completely separate compositions and moods. Learn how to use it as reference for a painting. Manipulate and collage imagery if need be. Each student will focus on their own personal painting-compositional narrative. Simple or complex.
We will go over oil painting fundamentals and painting techniques. Colors and mediums.
Lots of inspirational images and books.
Fun fun!

AND they offer a paypal payment plan Woo hoo!
