Think you need tons of paints to create a beautiful Portrait? Come take this workshop and find trust in your mixing skills. Learn that MORE is not always better. We will cover basics of the color wheel, mixing and what you can accomplish with just three Primary Colors, white and black paint. I know it's always fun to own all those lush yummy colors that Golden makes, but not always in the budget or easy to travel with 20 different paints. It's also nice knowing you can mix and get depth, shade and tone with just a few tools in your kit. We will also cover drawing a face. I will teach you how to break down things into simple shapes and show you a couple super easy tricks that will help improve your skills. No MATH required! Don't worry I will bring face templates also for newbies who can trace so you can build your color and shading skills. Don't be afraid this class will help any level artist with color and drawing. As a extra bonus I will also show you how you can use medium to build extra layers in your paintings.

Kit/Materials Fee (payable to instructor at class time):

  • $10.00 includes:
  • Tips and tricks handouts
  • Some reference photos
  • Face templates
  • Stencils and Paints to share

Student should bring:

  • One color of each in a Red, Blue, and Yellow acrylic paints. I say step out of your comfort zone and choose from each category those you would not normally use. I found I loved Quinacridone Magenta, Paynes Gray and Yellow Ochre.
  • One white and one black acrylic paints. Craft paint works fine.
  • Reference photos that you can draw from or you can even do paint-over on. Clothing catalogs work great for paint-overs.
  • Paint brushes - I like a larger size for washes and filling in large areas one small for detail and 2-3 in between for the rest.
  • Canvas or artist panel (artist panel may be easier to travel with if you're flying) I like 16 x 20 for this project but you can go a little smaller 12 x 16 would also work. You can work on a heavy paper like water color or Bristol board.
  • Pencil and eraser - I also like in my stash a Stabilo in black.
  • You can bring some ephemera to add into your paintings if you like but mine did not have any for this class.
