Hello friends! I am so looking forward working to painting portraits with all of you! I have been drawing and painting portraits since I was a little girl. I have always been pulled to the face and I now know that comes from a desire to connect with others. I feel a purpose in connection to the subject, connection to the process and connection to the viewer. While I paint I am in communication with my subject. We are in our own world together. This is my vehicle for self expression and story telling. I have a desire to grow as an artist and that is what inspires me to keep moving forward. Each day is an evolution and I am grateful to be on this path as an artist.
In this course, we will be learning to see portraits in a deeper light. There are subtleties in the face that require greater focus to notice, and I will be your guide to help you see these subtleties as you paint your own portraits.
This workshop will run for one week and will have a total of three projects. We will complete a monochromatic painting, a full color-painting, and a painting that incorporates collaging. Each project will feature a different angle of the face, and that final project will be more in-depth. Below are samples of projects that we will complete, but are not exact pictures.
By the end of this course, you will have an understanding of the following concepts:
- How to begin a painting by first drawing out the portrait.
- Understand that the face is like a puzzle. We will measure, using negative space and shapes that make up the face to put the pieces together to achieve a likeness.
- Learn to see values and break down shadow and mid tone.
- Mix colors to create many variations for your portraits.
- Incorporate certain colors into highlight and shadows to achieve a cool and warm effect.
- Create a monochromatic painting
- Create a full color portrait
- Incorporate collage into your portraits
I will be actively involved with the class via Facebook during the week that the class runs and I will continue to be available to you after the week is over. So, if you do not get the projects completed during the the first week, don’t worry! I will still be here for you! You will have lifetime access to this course, and I will be here to hold your hand through my process!
