Intro to Portrait Painting in Water Based Oils

This is a fun, 2 part, painting workshop for artists interested in developing portraits in water based oils. It is helpful to have some drawing experience.

The first afternoon workshop will focus on key facial landmarks that help an artist successfully develop a portrait on canvas as well as important value relationships that are needed to create more life-like faces.

Artists will need to bring one or two photographs of faces to class so they can develop their favorite photo into a painting.

After going over the fundamentals of portrait dimensions and value relationships during the first half of class, students can start developing their portrait paintings.

In part 2 of the workshop, the focus of the class will be on further developing the portrait painting that each student has started. The goal is to have a completed portrait by the end of the second three hour workshop.

Supplies will be provided which will include water based oils, brushes, and an 11″ x 14″ canvas. You just need to show up with a photo to paint!

Class size is limited to 6 students.

This class is for ages 14 and older.
