5 days, January 29 –February 2, 2020
Focus on an analytical and emotive approach to painting portraits with an emphasis on color, value, proportion, form, and light. The workshop will be devoted to drawing, mappingout the under layer in values, and developing the color in your paintings. Anatomy, movement, and interpretation of what you see as a model poses change will be covered. The class will cover the Alla Prima technique which involves both scumbling and glazing. Each day will consist of lectures, demos, and one-on-one critiques.
