Medium: Oil or acrylic
The features of a person’s face are their most expressive, mobile elements, yet that liveliness is tricky to capture in paint.
Too often, the eyes and mouth of a portrait can stiffen and look harsh, while the nose seems flat and unconvincing.
In this 1 1/2 hour demo, Ingrid will show how she tackles each of the features from different angles, as well as how she integrates them into a face. Her focus will be on creating a relaxed, natural face that conveys energy and life.
Ingrid’s demo will be in oil but the method is appropriate for any opaque medium. Throughout, she will welcome your questions and explain her answers both in words and by demonstrating.
