This 5-day workshop focuses on a head-and-shoulders portrait study painted from a live model using a “classical” academic approach. There will be a single, long-term sitting for the duration of the workshop. The academic method allows participants to explore all aspects of portraiture including anatomical structure, planes of the face, expressive brushwork, achieving a likeness, etc. Despite its ancient roots, this is a modern synthesis that allows for efficiency of execution.
