This portrait workshop is designed for artists working in either oils or pastel. Susan will work with and teach in both mediums. For the first part of each class Susan will answer any questions from the group before she illustrates lessons on different ways to approach portraits through screen share. She will show masterworks of past and present artists to discuss different lighting and painting techniques. This should inspire and give the class examples of how to use the different mediums to achieve various effects and moods. The second half of each class will focus on Susan demonstrating her approach to working from a photo. She will offer the same photo references to the class so they can paint along as she demonstrates, or have the option of painting it as homework during the week. Students are encouraged to email their homework images during the week for Susan to give her suggestions advice to each student throughout the workshop. Susan will do a pastel demo for the 1st and 3rd class and an oil demo for the 2nd and 4th class.

Students at all levels are welcome.
