FACE TO FACE (Portraiture in Watercolor (Early Spring 2020) for intermediate & advanced painters
Portraiture is always a challenging subject for the artists. No matter what the artist’s medium or degree of stylistic exactness/looseness preferred there is always a degree of “likeness” or accuracy that must be attained for credibility. Work along with Jim to develop strong and accurate portraiture, with a loose feel compatible with watercolor. We begin a study of the head by sketching the features, proportions and then add shadows for complexity and drama. By the 4th session we transition to watercolor and continue with the profile, 3⁄4 view, the frontal view, and, if time, chiaroscuro. Come prepared to sketch with pencil in an 8x10” (or larger) sketchbook the first day.
Meets: 8 sessions, 9AM to Noon price: $230
Dates: April 28—June 16, 2020
Location: 1040 Dellwood Ave., Boulder, CO. (1 1/2 blocks west of Broadway in N. Boulder)
