The Head Examined
THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL
This workshop takes a reductive approach to painting the head, experimenting with how little information is necessary. Light and the way it affects perception of structure will be emphasized, as well as finding specific and surprising color. We will work from the model. Self-portraits and a study of historical and contemporary portraiture will be included. Some painting experience required; oil paint is the preferred medium.
