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.

Abstracting the Figure

Using classical approaches of contour and construction drawing, we will begin by making preparatory studies for the paintings to come. We’ve all seen paintings of a nude standing, or a model sitting on a stool. How do we turn these studies into dynamic paintings that go beyond the academic cliché? This term is about taking our painting beyond the reference and making them our own. By binding the classical techniques of draftsmanship with strong design we will untether ourselves from the limitations of painting only what we see in front of us.
