The Portrait Sketch Workshop

180.00 200.00

March 23-25, 2017

10:00 am - 5:00 pm (lunch 1:00 - 2:00 pm)

The objective of this three day workshop is for participants to learn to make convincing, sensitive portraits through a coherent, analytical approach to drawing and painting. Using a lucid step-by-step process, participants will paint one six-hour portrait each of the three days, with a different model each day. Phil will give daily demonstrations, as well as personal critiques to guide artists through each stage of the process. Topics to be covered include creating a strong likeness with accurate drawing, value understanding based on light phenomena, color mixing, edge manipulation, and cranial structure and anatomy. Although the workshop is geared towards painters with some experience in oil paint, artists who prefer to work in graphite, charcoal, or paint in grisaille are encouraged to participate.
