Big Brush Portraits
Paint eye-catching portraits with a big brush! You’ll learn and apply the following concepts: Seeing the forest before the trees- how to effectively block-in a painting, the big brush approach, and strategies for greater brushwork confidence and capturing the spirit of the pose. Work from observation and learn to accurately observe value and color relationship to mix equivalent analogies with oil paint. Learn from and discuss past and contemporary masterworks to inform your work and artistic vision. This workshop will focus on the eight keys vital to portrait painting and a working process to progressively finish a portrait study in three hours.
Prerequisite: Some drawing experience preferred but open to all levels.
