PORTRAIT PAINTING IN OILS:  EXPLORING THE INTENSITY OF COLOR WITH A LIMITED PALETTE

 

"In this class, students will improve upon their overall approach to painting the portrait with an emphasis on brush control, paint mixing, and color harmony. We will approach painting by learning to see our environment as composed of simple shapes and values, lay down shadow and light masses with confident brushwork, which will lead to stronger visual statements and weightier paintings. Students will work from a model, beginning with short poses in monochrome and gradually work up to longer sessions in full color enabling them to make quicker decisions leading to a more intuitive approach when handling the paint. This class is designed for all levels of painters who have life drawing experience. Jennifer Balkan will be doing demonstrations throughout the workshop and students will be working from a live model.

  • Our goal is to see the face as an abstract composite of dark and light shapes (values) in order to create a strong value statement and to get proportionally accurate facial features, both of which will contribute to a compelling composition and statement of light and shadow.   We will begin our study doing simple three-value studies using a monochromatic palette in order to focus solely on values. We will later discuss color; specifically some color theory, color harmony and choosing a palette.  We will mix paint together.  And afterwards, we will do limited palette studies, beginning with very short poses and increasing time.
