Getting Started with Portraits with David Goatley

January 15, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:30 am, repeating until January 16, 2022


Working from a live model for two days, students will explore the basic proportions of the head; draw convincing features; use tone to describe form and structure; and all that goes into making a lively, engaging portrait. Working all-prima, you will begin in black and white paint, to help grasp tonal concepts. You will progress the second day to colour, beginning with a demo in colour and discussions of media, colour palette, and colour mixing. Students will then work on a head-and-shoulders colour study. With clear step-by-step, hands-on instructions, a wealth of technical tips, continuous demonstrations, and personal instruction at each student’s easel, students learn how to approach the challenges of portraiture with confidence.
