2018 WORKSHOP #3: 9/21-22-23/2018


In this exciting workshop, you’ll learn how to paint a portrait in oil using age-old and modern techniques from a reference photo. You can expect hands-on instruction and lots of tips and tricks along the way. We’ll jump right in on the first day briefly discussing Adobe Photoshop and printing out a color reference. We’ll then apply the drawing onto the toned canvas by either tracing or projection and ink-in the lines. After a review of color and mixing skin tones we’ll block-in the first thin layer of color then paint the portrait with subsequent thicker layers and finalize the subtle details. Students can expect to walk away from this class with a basic knowledge needed to paint a portrait from a photo to achieve likeness, skin-tones, and detail.
