This workshop focuses on the principles and practice essential to achieve a convincing, dimensional and well-executed portrait in oils. These principles are analyzed in a logical sequence beginning with block-in and continuing through fine tuning color and value. This is an information-packed workshop geared to the experienced painter.

The workshop covers breaking down the painting process into stages and building the painting through awareness of main angles, masses, structure, anatomical landmarks, values and color relationships, edges and creating a focal point. Working with fabric also is covered. The workshop includes a morning demo covering the day’s work. There is a long pose set Tuesday allowing for a five-day painting. Working with an awareness of stages and focusing on specific information necessary to each stage allows the painter to be in control of his or her canvas.
