Portland, OR Portrait Workshop

Saturday & Sunday - July 27th - 28th  This workshop will focus on creating a solid start with specific attention paid to identifying and drawing the planes of the model.  We will then move on to the application of value and color to that form.  Small class size allows for each student to work at your own pace and still receive the insights you need for your own personal breakthroughs.  I will do a portrait painting demo and answer any questions that come up along the way.  Direct painting allows for a vital connection with the subject.  Staying consistently more present to the subject in front of us as we paint changes the way that we see. The result is a fresh and very dynamic painting based on our immediate observation rather than preconceived notions of what we think we know about the model and the portrait.

COLOR COURSE

Fridays - March 15th - May 10th (No Class May 3rd) Let's Look at Things Differently.  The focus of this term will be on using color in a way that is both powerful and harmonious.  By shifting our perspective on how we see and use color just a bit, we can create scintillating pallets with rich and dynamic color while retaining a strong sense of sophistication and cohesion.
