Working from a live model, students will learn classical methods of painting oil portraits on canvas. Each day, I will spend the morning demonstrating and walking students through my thinking and painting process, and in the afternoons, the attendees will all paint together while I offer group and individual guidance to keep everyone’s paintings on track.
Day 1: Underpainting in raw umber to establish the overall shapes and value pattern of light and dark
Day 2: Color block-in
Day 3: Color rendering, refining, and polishing
Although portraiture will be our focus, the techniques and principles we cover can be applied to any type of oil painting: landscape, figure, still-life, etc.
I hope to see you there!
