PORTRAIT PAINTING FROM PHOTOGRAPHS
Portrait Painting from Photographs
April 9-11, 2021
Portrait work from a live model can be a daunting task, even if your painting skills are solid. The pressure of time constraints and a model that never stays perfectly still add more difficulty to a complex subject. The use of photography offers the opportunity to explore the fundamentals of portrait painting in a relaxed manner without these pressures, and build core skills necessary to successfully tackling the live model. Discussions include drawing tips, head construction, complexions and their locations on the color wheel, palette layout, and step-by-step painting procedure. A professionally photographed head will be provided for each student.
