This workshop is for oil painters of all levels and skills. Workshop classes will involve working with a live model, two sessions daily. The focus of this workshop is to define and organize the essential structure of a clarified visual approach when painting a portrait. Students will explore abstract value patterns, visual concepts, elements – point, line, aspect, color, form and edges with feeling and rhythm while developing their aesthetic sensibilities. Students will also learn to create portrait paintings through the fusion of real life and picture subject matter. Emphasis will be placed on helping artists cultivate and improve their own style rather than imposing one upon them. Workshop activities will include painting demonstrations, individualized instruction, and visual presentations intended to renew and expand each student’s visual vocabulary and understanding.
