Painting Portraits in Oil

Request Program

Discover how a portrait is so much more than simply recording proportions, it can be one of the most expressive paintings you can create. We will focus on identifying the simple patterns and forms that are the basis for a well-designed portrait and learn how to use oils to capture the character of your subject. Students will learn from demonstrations of color mixing and technique. Students should bring a printed photo or an image on iPad/tablet to work from. Images with clear lighting are easiest but working with images in all lighting situations will be addressed.
