    Workshop

This workshop will help students learn to paint a realism-style “alla prima” or “all at once” portrait in roughly three hours, using value and color to communicate the light and shadow that gives dimension and drama to a portrait.

This workshop will teach students:
• How to draw an underpainting in oil that guides your subsequent color work.
• How to mix the basic values of skin tone color and build on your underpainting.
• The finishing touches that bring life to a painting.
In the morning session Suzann will explain her approach to alla prima portraiture and demonstrate painting a full-color portrait from a live model. The afternoon session features hands-on practice painting from a live model and one-on-one guidance.

Ages 14 and up. Painting and drawing experience suggested but not required. Class will break for an hour at noon, please bring a lunch.
