PAINTING PORTRAITS & PEOPLE
Spring 2019 — Days & Times to be Announced — Address Below
“Secrets” used by Classical through contemporary portrait painting Masters are introduced and demonstrated, beginning with the proportions and structure of the head; establishing the light and dark masses; and portrait artists’ methods of rendering facial features. Over time, we will build upon this foundation and study selecting and mixing colors on the palette; layering and blending naturalistic skin tones on the canvas; capturing the warm, cool and neutral variations, and the transparency of the flesh; understanding and rendering folds and different materials of clothing in a painterly manner; interpreting the effects of light and atmosphere; alla prima brush and palette knife techniques; and helpful studio tips.
