Patricia Watwood: Portrait Painting Workshopby Matthew Innis |
In this 5 full-day painting workshop you will learn how master painter Patricia Watwood uses great design and color to create exciting and memorable paintings. Patricia will teach her process of making a portrait in three steps, first planning the design and making a drawing in charcoal. Next, she will show you how to use a limited palette to quickly map out the light and form. The final stage will teach you how to work with her full color palette to get beautiful and naturalistic skin tones, and organize the colors of your picture for a successful and beautiful result. During the workshop, she will also give a lecture on design concepts, share her creative process, and discuss staying inspired, to give you tools for strong compositions and creative images. The class will create thumbnail studies and work together on making good design choices that will help strengthen your art making. There will be daily demonstrations and lectures, and 4-5 hours of painting time from the model each day, with individual critiques and instruction.
