In this workshop you will advance your painting from the literal replication of the model to an expressive and unique work of art. We will revisit the basics of portraiture and offer simplified techniques that will help to build confidence in this most rewarding subject. Manageable concepts of anatomy are presented that will add to the student's knowledge base. These will be integrated with classic principles of art: rhythm of application, design and composition, tones and values, shapes and forms, cool and warm colors and more as they relate to painting the portrait. And finally, we will discuss the magic of Fechin, Zorn, Sorolla, Repin, Sargent and others which will help students take the leap to applying the principles of these masters.

Please sign up early; class size is limited.
