Delve into portraiture through painting directly from a model. Students will learn to examine skin tone quality in terms of color tempertures and opacity by working with a limited but useful palette or colors. Participants will also pay attention to proportion and the drawing of features, simplification of the tones, creating a sense of light, and our ability to see! Class demos, critiques, and one-on-one attention provided. Drawing experience is highly recommended. Some experience with oils is useful. Model fee included.
