You will explore the use of gestural, descriptive and elegant brushstrokes, bringing a fresh, lively feeling into your work.
Working from a master copy, you will create a fully finished portrait painting, learning Sargent’s approach step-by-step.
Beginning with a drawing using burnt umber, you will then use painterly, bravura brushwork to describe various surfaces (skin, hair, clothing, jewelry, etc.) with an economy of means.
The instructor works with you at your own pace, offering technical and creative guidance, along with brief lectures, slideshows and demonstrations throughout the weekend.
