I am honored to announce that Renata Loree will be coming to teach in my studio in October!  In this workshop, Renata will take you through her creative process of painting a soulful portrait!  She will begin by walking you through creating an imaginative background.  Renata will help you to visualize all of the possibilities that can develop into a story right on your canvas!   Next, Renata will spend time demonstrating how to sketch both the figure and hands!  Students will spend enough time during this step to gain the confidence needed to transfer these practice sketches onto the final canvas.  Renata will explain the best way to position and draw hands in a fluid and natural way to complement the message of your paintings.  Finally, all of the techniques covered will come together as students complete their soulful portrait!

Important Information:

Supplies:

  • Canvas - 16x20 or larger
  • Colors and mediums - Gesso, colors can be more expensive, like golden acrylics - any kind of red, like Pyrrole Red or Cadmium Red medium or Light, Raw Sienna or Yellow Ochre, Hansa Yellow or Lemon Yellow, Utramarine Blue, Paynes Gray, Raw Umber. These are basic paints I use almost always and you can use comparable colors in any other Acrylic Paint supplier, like Liquitex or Basics, or even crafts paints. Even though crafts paint pigment is not as intense so I would not recommend them for our purpose, but you can work with them. If you are bringing cheaper sets of colors, get wider variety of colors and I will explain how to use them. Other colors you might bring with you for variation are Quinacridone Magenta, Quinacridone Crimson, Alizarin Crimson, Teal or any other color you would like to work with.
  • Bring these colors in heavy body acrylics or Gold Open paints. We might mix our colors with fluid medium or glazing fluid, but that is not mandatory. 
  • Ephemera, stencils - I like to start my backgrounds by using stencils or clippings from magazines, even though I use the clippings more for inspiration now, then attaching them to the canvas. If you bring your own stencils, bring a sponge or two as well.
We are going to work on sketching out a portrait and work on values and learning color mixing for a face. If you would like to practice that first on a piece of paper, please bring mixed media paper and a pencil. Stabillo pencil is very useful when you are sketching your portrait on a canvas.
Brushes - I recommend you bring at least three different sizes of brushes, one for large surface, size 6 flat brush, size 2 and size 4. You could also choose these sizes in flat, round or both. I would also recommend to bring a liner brush for painting thin lines, with long soft tip.
