Acrylic Portrait Workshop

This portrait-painting workshop focuses on quick paint handling as well as careful colour mixing for rendering particular lights, shadows and textures to create form and evoke personality. Steps for layering the portrait first from wide broad shapes of tone, to medium sized colours laid next to each other and finishing with fine, subtle details will be introduced and practiced. Students will work with photographic sources, warm-up exercises, brief sketches and mirrors. An introduction to acrylic painting with experience and practice in colour theory (colour mixing) and basic drawing skills are strongly suggested as prerequisites for this workshop.

Please bring: painting supplies (see list), two 12 x 16 canvases or canvas boards, a clear and well-lit 8' x 10' (or larger) portrait photograph of yourself (or loved one), and two clear images of portrait paintings by an artist you admire.
