Please note:

This course has a THREE-hour or FOUR-hour option.

In this class we will focus on the alla prima technique of painting the portrait.  We will emphasize the structure and the major planes of the head, as well as structural symmetry to the face, color, shape, value, and edges.  We will focus on painting the head quickly and directly, in the manner of John Singer Sargent and Richard Schmid.
