Bay Area Classical Artist Academy
3 Day Portrait Workshop
Dates: October 9, 10, 11 ( 3 days )
In this workshop, students will create a finished portrait painting from life using traditional techniques over the course of three days. Emphasis will be placed on large shape drawing, value control, and accurate form-based color Painting the portrait can happen in many different ways from very loose Alla Prima studies to fully rendered paintings and we’ll explore the benefits of each. Class discussions will include how to accurately judge values, value compression, handling of edges, and using simple and complex forms while working from life as well as anatomy and abstract facial structure Darren will demo from the model for the first few hours of class and the students will work the remainder of the day with guided instruction.
