Take this opportunity to learn from renowned portrait artist, Paul W. McCormack. Students will be working from a live model as Paul demonstrates and lectures on the techniques and principles used in creating a traditional portrait in oil. Students will be taken through a step-by-step procedure…watch, listen, learn, and then apply. Beginning with an open grisaille on a toned canvas, students will learn how to acquire correct proportions in order to achieve a likeness of the model. The course will then continue with demonstrations and lectures on color mixing, and paint application. Students will learn how to see and execute correct value and color relations, proper treatment of edges and how to model features in a realistic fashion. A direct alla prima approach to oil painting will be used in this 1-day intensive workshop. Beginners and advanced students alike will certainly benefit from the experience.
