Description: This class teaches the fundamentals of painting the head in oil. Students will paint the model from life in this weekend workshop. Beginning with a toned canvas, students will execute a careful drawing and subsequently build up the structure of the head from darks to lights. Emphasis is on understanding the structure of the head and learning to mix colors to create realistic and harmonious flesh tones. The class will begin with a demonstration of the alla prima technique, used by John Singer Sargent and handed down through generations of atelier painters and teachers.

 

Level: must have working experience in oil paints, not a beginning painting class.
