In this two-day intensive painting workshop, students will be introduced to the art of portrait painting.  On the first day, the anatomy of the head and neck will be examined to help understand the structures, forms and relationships of the various parts that make up a face. Working from a live model, students will create a loose underpainting that establishes basic composition, form, and likeness.  On the second day, flesh tones and textures will be discussed and students will learn how to mix their own palette. Using these colors, they will work on bringing life and color to their paintings.
