Classical Oil Portraiture
May 14-17, 2015 (9am-4pm) — Learn how to lay in an accurate underdrawing in vine charcoal and create a small color poster study as a tool for making color choices. Then we will create an underpainting, a wash in a thin layer of color over your underdrawing. Next we will learn to execute the overpainting. There is an emphasis on turning form and use of color in doing so. The goal is to finish the painting region by region. Finally, we will learn a glazing technique. We will be using an alkyd medium that will help our overpainting to dry overnight so that we can apply a glaze to it the next day and continue with the overpainting. Visit website
