      Saturday and Sunday, 2/17 and 2/18/2024

      10:00 am to 4:00 pm

      In this Portrait Painting workshop we learn how to demystify portrait painting by breaking down the pose with a manageable and 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, and chroma. We 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

      Who is this workshop for?
