In this immersive workshop you will explore the abstract and representational painting process of J Louis from concept to creation. J will share with you his method for capturing exceptional reference imagery in a live model photo shoot and help you elevate your work with luscious color, texture, and design. Whether you are a painting enthusiast, professional artist, or just passionate and eager to learn, J Louis will help you push your boundaries in figurative art. This intensive Pro Class will focus on all aspects of merging abstraction and representation.

J will guide you through a live model photography session, compositional and art theory discussion, material application demonstration, the completion of your own finished art piece, and more. The Figure & Abstraction Workshop will conclude with a discussion on efficient studio management, marketing, business practices and live auction of J’s demonstration painting. This workshop is for people who wish to completely immerse themselves in J Louis’ intense personal workflow. 


J Louis is known for his oil paintings of female figures, focusing on the exquisite strength and alluring complexity of women through saturated color, flattened space, and texture. His technical painting skills, his eye for capturing an expression that portrays an intimate story, and his material experimentation are combined together to create a dynamic harmony between emotion and design. J Louis explores the boundaries of contemporary expressionism while living and working in New York City. Born: American, Karlsruhe, Germany Education: B.F.A. Savannah College of Art & Design, (Summa Cum Laude)
