Felicia Forte Portrait Workshop August, 2015

Felicia_Forte_PaintingPORTRAIT WORKSHOP

This oil painting workshop teaches a single-session alla-prima portrait technique using a traditional limited palette.

Over the three days of this workshop we will practice a series of exercises designed to illustrate the fundamentals.

These exercises will culminate in painting the model using the Zorn palette, a muted version of a primary color palette, allowing you ease in color harmony. I will demonstrate each day of class as well as offer each student personal critique and advice

Dates: AUGUST 7-9, 2015 (Fri-Sun) 10am – 5pm

Location: NUMU Atelier at the Tait Avenue Studio, 4 Tait Avenue, Los Gatos, CA
(at the corner of Tait and Main, two blocks from downtown)
Directions

Cost: $480 (includes model fee)

David Gray Oil Portrait Sketch Workshop September, 2015

DavidGraySelfPortraitThis painting workshop is excellent for artists interested in realistic oil painting techniques. David teaches how to manage a traditional portrait painters’ palette, and demonstrates his alla prima (“first stroke”) style.

Students will be painting one-day portraits of three separate models over three days. Mornings will be an intimate demonstration session including direct painting techniques. Generous afternoon studio time will allow students to complete a portrait in a day.

This workshop condenses many of the skills taught in lengthy portrait painting courses, with a more impressionistic use of traditional painting techniques. It’s a very expressive and energetic kind of painting, and David’s teaching style reflects this.

 

David Gray is a highly accomplished realist painter who excels at this particular quick-sketch technique. His painting videos are great, check them out!
