Event Description
Paint like a French Impressionist! Discover the beauty of constructing form through color relationships and mark making in oils. In this 5 hour workshop, Jason provides clear and accessible guidance to making portrait painting approachable and expressive. Participants will examine work-flow efficiency with focus on palette preparation, color/value recognition, mapping contour of light and shadow, and confidence in stroke. All skills-levels welcome, but no experience is necessary. It's about discovering new ways of looking at the subject and having fun! All painting supplies are provided. Just bring a roll of paper towels and a lunch, and leave with a great painting. 10% discount for members of Gallery 1070! Click here to see the video of Jason talking about the process! FAQs I've never painted in oils, will this be an issue?Absolutely not! If you were thinking about investing in oils as a medium, this is an excellent chance to try it out first. Who are we painting?Jason will provide a collection of portrait photos, and you can choose your favorite. Can I invite my friends?Please do! However, we have a 12 student maximum per workshop. I would like to organize work event or retreat, can I do that here?Of course! There is a 12 student maximum per workshop, but I am happy to make special accomodations.
