About The Event

Do you think painting people is too challenging? Have you ever attempted this daunting feat and became frustrated because the model didn’t think it looked like them? In this course, we will uncover secrets that will make painting people less mysterious. Planes of the head, mixing accurate flesh tones, placing features and finishing techniques will all be discussed and practiced so the model will not only have an accurate likeness, but they will also look human. We will paint two portraits from live sitters so students will have two sessions to complete each portrait.

He continues his own studies in still life and portraiture in workshops  in New York, Wisconsin and Arizona, and has instructed artists in many facets of visual arts.
