CANCEL: Portrait Painting
Alla prima portraiture will focus on the eight keys vital to portrait painting and a working process to progressively finish a portrait study in three hours. Using a time-tested approach and working with a limited palette of just four colors, students will learn:
*How to effectively block-in a painting.
*Accurately observe value and color relationships and mix equivalent analogies in paint.
*Simplified anatomy and understanding head construction in volumes and planes.
*Animating the pose and keys to capturing a likeness.
The class will also include discussions of past and contemporary masterworks and the technical aspects of painting and materials. This class is open to beginning to advanced painters.
Prerequisite: Basic drawing skills and knowing the basics of the materials used in oil, acrylic is recommended.
Instructor: Eduardo Fernandez
Eduardo Fernandez is inspired by the effects of color and light, direct observation, imagination and love for oil painting and drawing. Portraits, still-life and cityscapes are themes that he returns to with frequency.
Eduardo was commissioned to paint the official portrait of the Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski and Medal of Honor Recipient Lt Cl Stan Adams. He has exhibited in several Northwest venues and was the 2013 Artist-in-Residence at the University Club in Portland.
