Course Description:

Each day will bring a new pose, building towards painting convincing and lifelike portrait sketches. We will approach the portrait sketch through a series of pedagogical steps beginning with portrait drawing in pencil, then charcoal, grisaille and finally we will spend the concluding days on portrait sketches in oil using a full color palette. There will be an emphasis on drawing throughout, discussing concepts of flat shape block-in, anatomy, structure and perspective as they relate to the portrait. Paint handling and color mixing will be discussed as the workshop graduates to oils. The class will employ a combination of demonstrations by the instructors and individual critiques to guide students to meet individual goals.
