Alla Prima Watercolor: Faces & Figures with Janet Rogers
February 21 : 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until February 23, 2018
This dynamic workshop is designed to enable participants to quickly gain confidence in approaching the portrait and figure in a more spontaneous, intuitive and expressive way. Demonstrations, class instruction, individual assistance, “show and tell”, and a series of “fun” exercises, (which will include drawing, color and paint application) will weave into class painting time. Special emphasis will be on achieving a fresh look of translucent flesh tones in the portrait with unique color changes, which will add to the excitement of capturing the essence of the subject. Many “features” will be covered, including an approach to children’s portraits. Students will have an opportunity to work from their photographs or Janet’s and also the opportunity to paint in a gestural and intuitive manner from the live model for ½ of the last day. Our goals will be to “see” in new ways — bringing “life” and interpretation to the portrait and figure, and to discover intuitive color and design. $5 model fee due to instructor. Open to all skill levels.
