In this workshop we will focus on the perception and simplification of line, tonality, and color, along with an approach to rendering that maintains the unity within a painting. We will use historic pigments to create a realistic oil portrait using principals that are applicable to various other genres of painting. Students will learn to self-correct, basics in color mixing, along with how to quickly perceive and lay-in a painting.

Workshop Objectives
–Informing perception (i.e. sharpening the student’s “seeing”)
–Equipping the student to process the visual information systematically
