Together with Roman, you will create a small classical lit portrait from life. You'll receive guidance through each stage, from initial sketch to the final rendering. You’ll learn the basic principles of depicting shapes in a stream of light. The aim will be to paint a portrait during the day that will prepare you to try on your own at home.
All levels are welcome. It would be an advantage if you have used/experimented with oils before, but not essential.
Students will need to bring a standard set of art materials: canvas, brushes, painting medium, palette, palette knife.
Easels will be provided.
A selection of oil paints will be provided as well. You’ll be using: titanium white, ivory black, burnt umber, ultramarine blue, cerulean blue, crimson red, cadmium red, cadmium yellow, yellow ochre, sap green/olive green.
If they prefer, students are welcome to also bring their own oil paints and a quality Alkyd painting medium, to ease the flow of the session.
Note: It will be possible to clean the brushes after the lesson.
