What's Included

This workshop will cover elements of portrait painting from start to finish for both oil and acrylic painters. Artists will gain an understanding of not just what they think they see but what is really there. The workshop will start with composition, move to color, and progress to putting everything together with the use of a live model. Some knowledge of drawing will be helpful.
