Learn to Paint in Oils
This class teaches the fundamentals of painting the head in oil. Students paint the model from life in four sessions. Beginning with a toned canvas, students will execute a careful drawing and subsequently build up the structure of the head from darks to lights. Emphasis is on understanding the structure of the head and learning to mix colors to create realistic and harmonious flesh tones. The class will begin with a demonstration of the alla prima technique, used by John Singer Sargent and handed down through generations of atelier painters and teachers.
This class is geared for students who have had the basics of painting and drawing but are eager to continue to practice and find a finer path in their work.
