The objective of this course is to introduce observational strategies that help achieve likeness and realistic accuracy. Students will learn proportion basics, value, color mixing, color temperature and oil technique. Bring two or three 8” x 10” photo references of your subject’s head and neck area. Choose a photo with a range of values and clear detail. One will be chosen for painting. New and continuing students are welcome. Supply list on the website or at the gallery.
