"Portrait Painting: Capturing the Essences of People & Animals"
Thursdays, November 4 - December 16, 2021
 

Painting portraits can be intimidating for artists. Yet, with some simplified approaches that go beyond line drawing to shadow shapes, use of chiaroscuro, color accuracy, and overall design composition the magic of portrait painting becomes a truly enjoyable skill. These days most portrait painters must work from photos so adjusting for the limits of the photo is an essential part of the process. If you can take your own photos of your subject that have excellent color, definite shadow shapes in the face, and minimal background ‘noise’ you will have more success with the painting process. Be sure to enlarge the photo to the exact face and head size of your intended painting—life-size or slightly smaller works best.

"Lovely Skies, Seas, And Trees"
February 15-17, 2022
 

Gary Baughman weaves a scientific understanding of light and color into his Plein Air painting, giving students a fresh understanding of how to render subject matter with an enlightened eye toward rendering accurate and interesting compositions, shapes, values, colors, and edges. Baughman will demonstrate his method of working wet in wet and in one pass, encouraging students to work rapidly to capture the fleeting shadows and lighting as the sun moves across the sky. Students will be working in a small format, so that at least one painting can be finished each day. Gary will provide one-on-one supervision and instruction. Students may work in oil or pastel. This workshop is tailored for intermediate painters and/or beginners with good drawing skills.
