FACE TO FACE (Portraiture in Watercolor for intermediate & advanced painters
Portraiture is always a challenging subject for the artists. No matter what the artist’s medium or degree of stylistic exactness/looseness preferred there is always a degree of “likeness” or accuracy that must be attained for credibility. Work along with Jim to develop strong and accurate portraiture, with a loose feel compatible with watercolor. We begin a study of the head by sketching the features, proportions and then add shadows for complexity and drama. By the 4th session we transition to watercolor and continue with the profile, 3⁄4 view, the frontal view, and, if time, chiaroscuro. Come prepared to sketch with pencil in an 8x10” (or larger) sketchbook the first day. To be continued in followup 6 sessions.
Meets: 8 sessions, 9AM to Noon (FACE $220, 8 sessions or $30 each session)
Dates: Nov 21 – Dec 12, 2023 continues Jan 30 – Feb 20, 2024
