UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

Glazing in portrait painting

Saturday 5th of December 2020 10.00 - 15.00

Saturday 12th of  December 2020 10.00 - 15.00

The focus of this portrait workshop will be on the glazing technique. Glazing means spreading thin oily layers of colour on top of a pale or even monochrome painting.

To allow this process, we need to glaze on a totally dry painting, which is why the workshop takes place on two saturdays. Glazing is a technique that can add to a clear coloured portrait and can help reaching potent glowing colours.

On this workshop, participants can expect to expand their drawing skills and how to handle oli paints in genereal.
 

On saturday 5th we will thouroughly draw and paint monochrome portraits, with thick white paint in the lights.

On saturday 12th the portraits are dry and we will thave fun with the thin glazes and add accents and highligths.

Techniques for portrait

This weekend workshop is tailored specifically for those who love drawing and painting the partrait, but keeps meeting the same obstaccles in the process.

Therefore we will go through a lot of excercises that can help out in the struggles with anatomy, proportions and likeness. We will learn about the constructive portrait, meaning how to see the face and head as pyramids, cylinders, spheres and boxes.

On Sunday we will try out all these rules of thumb and technical ideas while drawing a portrait from a life model.

Painting the portrait in grisaille
Fall of light

Saturday 20th of February 2021 10.00 - 15.00

Sunday 21st of February 2021 10.00 - 15.00

 

By using a monochrome palette, participants will excercise only the most important aspects of painting, values, drawing and the fall of light. This means that we will investigate how the light acts when it hits a face in a dark invironment, as it describes the skin and the anatomy underneath.

That is why this workshop is without the use of colour. This tecnique is called grissaille.

There will be demonstrations and lectures by Nina and of course we will paint from a life model.
