Getting Started with Portraits
January 15, 2022 @ 9:30 am - January 16, 2022 @ 4:00 pm$325.00 – $345.00
Working from a live model for two days, students will explore the basic proportions of the head; drawing convincing features; using tone to describe form and structure; and all that goes into making a lively, engaging portrait. Working alla-prima, you will begin in black and white paint, to help grasp tonal concepts. You will progress the second day to colour, beginning with a demo in colour and discussions of media, colour palette, and colour mixing. Students will then work on a head-and-shoulders colour study. With clear step-by-step, hands-on instructions, a wealth of technical tips, continuous demonstrations, and personal instruction at each student’s easel, students learn how to approach the challenges of portraiture with confidence.
