Portrait Painting - 6 weeks

ID : 5224   
« back to classes page

This intensive portrait class focuses on drawing correctly from nature as a basic skill and foundation to good painting. Students will be working from the live model while being introduced to using a limited palette. Working with a limited color palette (White, Yellow, Red & Black) enables students to simplify the process of accurately mixing flesh tones while keeping the painting harmonious. Students will be working alongside the instructor as each stage of the process is explained and demonstrated. Emphasis will be placed on gesture, proportion, proper color mixing and the flow of light in order to represent the true visual impression of the model in their environment.  By decisively organizing and observing specific value shapes in relationship with structural and anatomical elements, the student further develops the ability to think as a painter.
