Patrick Byrnes Alla Prima Portrait

  • Starts 22 Jun
  • 370 British pounds
  • Hindolveston

Service Description

In this three-day workshop, artists will learn to create alla prima portrait paintings that evince the beauty and humanity of the model with freshness, sensitivity, and lively detail. Using a lucid step-by-step approach, participants will paint three portrait sketches of five different live models using a limited palette of six colors. Patrick will guide artists with daily demonstrations and comprehensive personalized critiques through each stage of the process – from creating a strong likeness with accurate drawing, to color mixing, modeling form and finishing details. Cranial anatomy, materials, paint handling, and the physics of light will also be discussed throughout each session. While this workshop is mainly geared towards painters with some previous experience in oils, artists who prefer to create portrait drawings in graphite or charcoal are also encouraged to participate.
