Watercolor Portraits – The Basics, B-I
at Art Center Manatee, Bradenton, call to register at: 941-746-2862
2 sessions available: Dec. 6-8, 2018 or Feb. 22-24, 2019
9:30 – 3:30 daily (Bring your lunch)
This 3-day workshop will focus on a straight-on view of the face to help students
understand the many levels of creating a portrait such as drawing, mixing skin and
hair colors, and shadowing. On the 1st day you will draw the basic relationships
of the facial features and how they relate proportionally to each other and then paint
sections from the handouts provided focusing on values. On the 2nd day, you will
use your photo reference of the person you wish to paint and learn how to “see” the
small changes of alignment. You will then paint sections from your photo reference
to learn how to mix skin and hair colors. On the final day, you will apply all that
you’ve learned and paint a full portrait from your photo reference. Light table will
be available for tracing. Coffee, tea, and water with snacks will be provided for
morning and afternoon breaks.
