     Learn to paint a finished portrait in oil in this intensive 5-day course! Portrait painting is an exciting tradition that has been practiced by artists for centuries as a vehicle, not only for study and/or commissions, but is also as one of the best modes of expression, and communication. Students will learn about the process involved in creating a successful portrait painting including: composition, technical drawing skills, oil paint materials and usage, and much discussion on the many facets of information specific to creating a portrait (e.g. Anatomy, painting/drawing different features, expression, etc.). Each student will spend the entire course going through the process of creating 1 finished oil painting from a live model. Every morning Colt will demonstrate, break for lunch, then students will get each afternoon to work on their own piece, supplemented by one-on-one instruction. If you want to grow your skill and understanding as a portrait artist this course is for you! Please sign up early; class size is limited.

    This workshop will be conducted online as a Zoom meeting! Join Waid online as he works from his home studio where he will demonstrate and lecture for one hour and look at student's work offering guidance and critique for the remaining time. Waid will also be in contact with students via email. 

    Students will be guided through the thought process required to paint the invisible - air! Yes, air or atmosphere envelopes all subjects in the landscape. It is a good thing to remind ourselves of the essential role that atmosphere plays in painting, and how to mix color in order to capture a sense of reality. The information presented in this condensed course will be focused on capturing this prime element of landscape painting while also incorporating composition, depth of field and balance.

    Please sign up early; class size is limited.
