A portrait workshop using models.
Description: The focus of this workshop is on training yourself to see accurate relationships and record them in the process of portrait painting. Dan will demonstrate two portraits in differing lighting situations. He will lead discussion using slides of masterworks to demonstrate principles of accurate edge control, value control and color temperature. Students paint a variety of models in these same lighting situations each day throughout the workshop. During painting time Dan will teach and critique as you are working. The week will end with some discussion of how he develops a larger composition with a figure in a studio/still life piece and students have the same model and set up for the full day of painting and the opportunity to work through some of those principles.
