Portrait Painting  

portrait

Portraits don't have to be complicated. The key to a good likeness is a good photo reference and an accurate drawing. We'll start by photographing a model. Each student can invite in a friend. You'll learn how to light the face to give it soft shadows and clean middle tones. We'll project the photos onto canvas and work in various ways to develop an underpainting, then color this using several techniques. This is a fun, proven method for advanced painters, but beginners will especially benefit. All levels. $4 supply fee included.
