People Portrait Oil Painting

Session 3

Class Dates: Tuesdays June 11, 18, 25 & July 2, 2024

Class Time: 6 - 8pm

Class Cost: $100

Class Size: maximum 9 students

This painting class is designed ONLY for current students  who wish to pursue People Portrait Painting. 


Returning students (those completing both the first portrait class and the Verdaccio class) will be selecting their own images. These images must be in an 8” x 10” format and printed and placed in a plastic sleeve! You may also bring one or both uncompleted paintings from previous classes to work on simultaneously.


We will continue to learn how to select and use different brushes and use paint mediums as well as layering and glazing, wet-on-wet painting (alla prima/direct painting), and other painting techniques. 


To better understand color mixing and theories and values the students will continue to learn to work with a limited palette of four colors plus white.  Occassionaly additional colors will be introduced by the instructor.  


Students will continue to learn how to evaluate their own paintings as they move through the painting process and how to correct errors.
