This is a two day studio based course in how to paint a portrait from a life Model. Working with the same model over 2 full days will give you a great opportunity to complete quite an in-depth study. There will be a focus on capturing likeness with accurate skin tones.
You learn how to map out the image onto canvas using an imprimatura underpainting, a painting method used by the old masters of the renaissance. Once the imprimatura stage has been completed the focus changes to an Alla Prima classical painting technique using a reduced palette of colour.
