"Portrait Painting"
April 10-19, 2023
 

In this 5-day workshop, Shana Levenson will instruct students on how to create an emotive painting that surpasses the photograph. Being able to create authentic paintings and capture the essence of who a person is will be a major focal point of the workshop. Students will create a finished portrait painting from a photo reference using traditional painting techniques. Emphasis will be placed on value control, skin tone, and edges. By focusing on deliberate color weaving and maintaining accurate mass relationships, the application of paint marks creates form and energy. Students will use the method of relative sizing to transcribe their photograph to their paper. Class discussions will include how to accurately judge values, edges and forms within your photo.
