In this 5-day workshop, each day will bring a new pose/model, building towards painting convincing and lifelike portrait sketches in the time provided. Day 1 all participants will draw, day 2 the participants will paint in grisaille, and the final three days we will focus on one pose / painting for the remainder of the time.  Students will discover a clear and straightforward way to approach painting, or drawing the portrait, with an emphasis on accurate drawing and observation, particularly the subtlety that the model presents. Students will also learn how to capture the likeness of the model, and simulate the effects of light washing over the forms presented before them.  Through constant demonstrations, and individual critiques, all information covered in this workshop will be thoroughly explained so that each person will meet their individual goals.

All levels are welcome.
