Darren Kingsley: Portrait Paintingby Matthew Innis |
This workshop studies the portrait through a series of studies as well as a longer pose. It will cover simplifying the head through large shadow and light shapes, studying color through simplified color studies and studying form, anatomy and facial structure through a long pose. The class will begin with demos in the mornings explaining the concepts for the day followed by studies of those concepts with critiques. The last three days will begin with a continuing demo in the morning followed by a 3-day long pose portrait painting.
