Portrait Painting Workshop May 14-17, 2015 Whistle Stop Corner
Thursday May 14, 6-9 p.m.
Friday-Saturday-Sunday May 15-16-17, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

$345. Includes Welcome Party & Demonstration Thurs. eve, and lunch Friday- Sunday.

Open to artists from Beginner to Advanced, as instruction is on an individual basis. (For example, a beginner may want to focus on sharpening drawing skills, while an advanced painter may want to work on refinement of edges or building confidence in mixing skin colors and representing values- your priorities are important to me, too.)

Artists will work from photographs I will prepare. Or bring your own references, but if they aren't "worthy", we'll "discuss." If 4 or more artists wish to have a session of painting from a live model, we can do that on Sunday afternoon.

Modules of instruction will include-

Composition concerns
Drawing considerations
Seeing and representing values
Mixing color
Application of paint- options abound.
Drawing / Painting hair, clothing and backgrounds

All the above imparted with generous doses of humor, enthusiasm and encouragement.
