Traditional Portrait Painting, July 28-30 with Ian Torney

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.
