Description

Successful paintings are forged in their beginnings. Artists will work from a live model each week to develop their portraits. This class covers fundamental concepts including strong composition, "first strokes", contrast (light and shadow), shapes, values, edges, color mixing, brush control, studio practices and use of materials. Experience two different approaches in beginning a portrait, and you choose one to continue your painting. This class is open to artists with some working knowledge of painting who are interested in improving their abilities in portraiture and figurative work. Artists at all levels receive individual, as well as group instruction. Demonstrations will also be given throughout. Creating a strong foundation is fundamental to a successful painting and essential to creating a portrait echoing the likeness and essence of your model. Supply list available at the Arts Barn. Registration includes model fee.


Supply list available at the Arts Barn. Oil preferred, but any opaque medium may be used. Registration includes model fee.
