Description

Are You a Bit of a Romantic at Heart?  Would You Like to Paint Intimate Portraits Full of Feeling and Energy?

Join Pauline Agnew in her debut course on our network, SOULSCAPES - PORTRAITS INSPIRED BY WUTHERING HEIGHTS.  This course is all about painting portraits that explore personality. In this instance, the personalities of Cathy and Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights, one of the most popular romantic novels in world literature. Find confidence in a process that includes choosing photo references, mixing a palette for your artwork, and then completing beautiful, emotional portraits.  Once completed you can use this approach to bring focus and depth to every face you paint.   We hope to see you in class!

COURSE OBJECTIVES

By the end of this course students will have an understanding of the following concepts:

  • Gather visual inspiration from Wuthering Heights which has inspired so many artists since its publication. 
  • Discover how to choose photos for your work that release rather then constrain you.
  • Choose and mix a palette that supports the mood you want to evoke in your painting 
  • Work with landscape inspired colours 
  • Use dynamic angles to create an interesting double portrait
  • Draw and paint loosely to create portraits that are full of vitality
  • Use texture and markmaking to create atmospheric paintings full of drama and romance
  • Work loosely with a theme to create a set of dynamic, related, portraits
  • Embrace mistakes as plot twists and portals of discovery

DESCRIPTION OF CLASS

Join me via a slide show where I will visually demonstrate how having a story can help us to connect more emotionally to a subject for portraiture.  This will give you the background to this project. 

We will then move on to a slideshow on photo references.  In this slideshow I will explain how finding the right photo can make all the difference in portraiture in general and how I invested time and energy in a search, and carefully selected copyright free photos that would really help me in this project. This is a really critical step in having a successful outcome in any portrait.

We will have three main portraiture lessons for this course.  Throughout these lessons you will be guided as we gather visual inspiration for our individual portraits.  From there you will explore choosing and mixing a paint palette that will support the mood you want to evoke in your painting.  The palette I will be using is inspired by landscape colours.  Experiment with using dynamic angles to create an interesting single and double portraits.  Throughout each lesson you will be introduced to techniques such as texture and markmaking, working loosely, and embracing mistakes.  All of these lessons will help you to create romance and drama within your portraits!
