Tony Ryder Portrait Painting Workshop

01 August, 2017 to 11 August, 2017


Bay Area Classical Artist Atelier
345 Quarry Rd, San Carlos, CA 94070

In this portrait painting workshop Tony demonstrates form painting on a toned ground, beginning with a medium-value ochre brush drawing. He illustrates the block-in and refinement of the drawing. He shows and explains how he sees, mixes and applies colors. He explains and demonstrates the logic of the method of painting from dark to light. He describes in great detail the forms of the head, their fluid shapes, convex surfaces and how they fit together. He shows how he builds the painting from the drawing up, again and again with each form, unified by the perception of the organization of the form of the model and the coherent action of the light.
