No Class on April 13
This class will explore “Alla Prima” portrait painting method which means mixing the right color and value right away. We will explore mixing natural looking flesh tones for different skin tones. We will discuss and practice color mixing, color theory and values (the lights and darks).
Artists will learn how to navigate what they are seeing. We talk about what questions artists can ask to help themselves to better see the colors, values, edges, and proportions of the model. Learn quick easy methods of matching and mixing the colors that you see.
We will first work from my photos and learn practical methods to find the right color and value. Using photos, we will concentrate more painting and finding the right color as opposed to drawing. You can bring your own photos the first class and we can chose the best option.
This class will include extra materials such as videos and handouts to help build a good foundation for portrait, figure painting as well as painting in general. For those that want extra learning, home practice will be offered. We will also have a model at least once if not twice. Model fee will be additional and split between the artists.
