This is a 6 week course which will focus primarily on the painted portrait. Students will be given the opportunity to paint in oils from the posed model and challenged to capture the basic structure of the bones to the subtle nuances of the flesh. In this course students will focus first on building the structure, the attitude and character of the sitter and on getting the likeness. The portrait is more than a head, its getting the pose and attitude and gesture of the sitter. Each week will bring a new experience in delving deeper into this particular genre. Students will have the chance to paint three different models each posing for two weeks. Colour harmony , edges, building form and tone will all be practiced and demonstrated.
This Drawing Course is designed to instruct beginners and more advanced students in the fundamentals of classical Portrait Drawing. In class students will draw and observe directly from a posed model. Gesture, anatomy, distribution of weight, light and shade, line, proportion, mass, tone and value will all be practiced and demonstrated. Beginners and Experienced Artists are all welcome.
