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.
