This class is designed for beginners to advanced artists who want to improve their portrait work.
Instructor: Anna Rose Bain
This workshop will focus on painting beautiful portraits with a strong understanding of form, edges, values, and clean color. If you have been struggling with seeing more than just “peach” in skin tones, come to this workshop and Anna will help you see just how much dazzling color can be found. We will be working from live models, with an instructor demonstration each morning, followed by one-on-one instruction in the afternoon.
Day one will focus on the basics of drawing and values and we will do a monochrome study from the model using just transparent oxide brown and white.
Days two and three will dive into color and Anna will share her approach to painting the portrait alla prima, or “all at once.”
Anna is an articulate instructor who shares her entire thought process while she works. Whether you are a beginning painter or an advanced artist looking to overcome a creative plateau, Anna will be able to spur you forward in your artistic journey
