Intermediate to Advanced Portraiture

September 6 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

This class is a series, it will be held Wednesdays, September 6, 13, 20, and 27. 7-10pm. 

This is a class for intermediate to advanced portrait students who would like to further develop their painting skills. The emphasis will be placed on the following topics:

1. Colors: discover the power of color temperature, complimentary colors, contrast and many other concepts behind a compelling portrait painting. In particular, we will dissect the mystery of skin color and learn how to paint glowing, life-like skin.
2. Edges and Transitions: This is a very important topic that many artists overlook as they learn how to paint portraits. You will learn the techniques to transition one color into another in a fully controlled manner that will give your painting the loose, painterly quality that we see in the works of the masters.

3. Common Features: From the glistening, translucent eyeballs, the shiny, flowing hair to a realistic hand, you will learn the strategies to approach and refine these difficult yet important features in a portrait painting.
