Portrait Intensive: Painting a Portrait from Life
Learn how to paint a professional portrait from the ground up! In this course students learn techniques, approach and materials used by of some of the greatest portrait painters of all times. With an emphasis on drawing (with paint), we will paint the portrait in sight size giving consideration to anatomical features, mixing a flesh tone palette, shape design, edges, composition and the sense of the “inner world” of the sitter. Studio set-up provides one model per every two students, allowing close access to the model while giving painters the ability to carefully study the features while composing the painting. Through daily brief lectures and progressive demonstrations, the instructor reveals techniques, concepts and insights passed on from Velázquez to Sargent and now to you!
This is a five half day intensive class with 3 hours of painting a day, 15 hours of instruction total. Price for the workshop is $750 (or $1150 if combined with the Mastercopy workshop - see details below). The price INCLUDES a model fee. As we will paint a life-size portrait, a model will be provided for each pair of students. A non refundable deposit of 50% is due upon registration.
