Portrait Painting with Ian Torney July 28, 2017
with Ian Torney

In this weekend workshop, students will learn traditional portrait painting techniques in oils utilizing a classicist palette. Without modernist colors the classicist painters of the Renaissance relied on tone over hue and chiaroscuro technique to create the illusion of three-dimensional form. We will work initially in value to create a grisaille composition of a traditional three-quarter self-portrait view, and then expand our limited palette utilizing traditional hues to create a finished self-portrait painting. Classicist portrait examples such as Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa,” Vermeer’s “Girl With A Pearl Earring” or Rembrandt’s self-portraits will be discussed. Participants will complete a self-portrait painting in this workshop. Not recommended for beginners – participants should possess at least modest drawing abilities and some experience with painting. Friday night will be a painting demo and class will continue all day Saturday and Sunday. Students can pack lunch or can pick one up on the lunch break.
Fri., July 28, 6-8pm, Sat & Sun, July 29 & 30, 9am-4pm (one hr lunch break)
