In this workshop we will develop a portrait from start to finish over the course of three days. On the first day, we will begin painting from a costumed live model. In the second and third days we will work from photos taken of the model from each students angle. Topics covered will include drawing, underpainting, color mixing and glazing.
Model fee included and 1 photo. If you want additional photos/angles of the model, be prepared to compensate the model for them. Bring a lunch! There is a fridge and microwave in the studio. Some light snacks and coffee are provided.

Zorn Color Workshop, Painting the Figure
November 4 & 5, 2017
Hours: 10:45-4:30 p.m.
Lunch: 1:30-2:15 p.m.
In this workshop you will learn to paint the figure from life “alla prima” with a focus on color mixing and painting flesh tones. Through a series of figure painting exercises, you will be introduced a structured palette often referred to as the Zorn Palette. We will also discuss materials and methods for sketching the figure on the canvas and wet-in- wet tiling techniques. Each day will begin with a demo by the artist and you will work from a new model and pose, practicing the methods introduced each day in the workshop.
