The Portrait in Oil

Learn to quickly and powerfully capture an expressive portrait. In this class, we’ll paint primarily from live models, which will enhance the way you see. We’ll cover setting up your palette, preparing your ground, getting your subject’s facial proportions right, mark making and other techniques. You’ll leave with an understanding of the portrait painting tradition as well as contemporary innovations.

Special Notes

  • Previous drawing and/or painting experience is recommended.
