In this workshop, artists will be working in oils to capture the likeness of a model holding a facial expression for the duration of six hours. Working with two models over the course of two days, we will treat the paintings as extended portrait sketches - beginning directly on the canvas with a monochromatic raw umber drawing, and then transitioning to form modeling with a focus on developing accurate hue, value, and chroma. Group discussions and individual critiques will delve into topics such as capturing a likeness using shapes, tilts, and comparative measure; anatomical landmarks and using the skull to stabilize the head with the expression; and making artistic choices with cropping, background, and color to capture an emotional presence in the painting. Some portrait sketch experience is recommended. Artists interested in drawing are welcome to do so.
