Paint eye-catching portraits with a big brush! This workshop will focus on the eight keys vital to portrait painting and a working process to progressively finish a portrait study from life in three hours. Working with a limited palette of just four colors you’ll learn:
- How to effectively block-in a painting.
- Accurately observe value and color relationships and mix equivalent analogies in paint.
- Simplified anatomy and understanding head construction in volumes and planes.
- Animating the pose and keys to capturing a likeness.
The class will include discussions of past and contemporary masterworks and the technical aspects of painting and materials. You'll benefit from working in a small focused learning environment with great lighting on both the model and your work station!
Note: For artists familiar with the Zorn palette Part II of this series includes option of adding chromatic colors to your palette.
