Course outline:

This workshop will focus on long pose in order to study portrait painting from start to finish. Every morning the instructor will demo on a long pose painting, leading students with what they will work on for the day. Students will leave with one finished portrait painting, having learned about using drawing as a start, flesh tones to build up the structure and forms, introduction of color, and finally the 'finishing pass' that will bring the painting up to it's highest resolution. Teacher will instruct with a demonstration as well as at each students easel.
