Gaining the ability to work quickly, and with precision, is key in your development as a painter. The time restraint forces you to forego detail and focus on gesture and large masses. This is the secret behind all great works. I will provide frequent demos, breaking down the process into clear and consecutive steps, as well as critique and instruction each session. Since simplicity is one of our goals, we will be using a limited palette — a limited palette of only 6 colors; Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow Light, Quinacridone Red, Cadmium Red Light, Cobalt Teal and Blue-Black (W&N). This palette is dynamic and will help us understand color relationships. We will focus on 4 main aspects of a portrait: Proportion, Value, Color, and Edge, which will help us to accurately capture a likeness within a limited time frame. Practicing this way over the course of the month will help to sharpen your observation, and take your skill to a new level.
