Learn to paint lively, accurate portraits using a shape-based, alla prima approach.

We’ll focus on:

  • capturing proportions without a photo or grid
  • mixing colorful flesh tones 
  • creating painterly marks and surfaces
  • composing the subject in its environment

Because life work makes us both more observant and more efficient at finding the essentials of a subject, this workshop will be taught through self portraiture using a mirror and, in the final class, from an online live model. 

Demonstrations will be in oil, but the method is appropriate for all opaque mediums.
