Friday Evening, Saturday & Sunday – December 14th – 16th
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. A 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.
