In this 3 day Alla Prima workshop we learn how to demystify portrait painting and break down the pose into manageable steps by using a systematic 4 step process. We learn how to accurately mix any color by working with a limited palette of 7 colors.
The primary palette will deepen our understanding of the relationship between hue value, chroma. and will learn how to mix flesh tones in 3 simple steps. We will paint 1 or 2 portraits per day and learn how to get a good likeness in a limited time frame.
