Portrait Painting 2-Day Workshop with John Peck
Dates: June 3 & 4
Time: 10:00am – 4:00pm
Fee: $245 TMA member, $265 non-member
This workshop is about painting a classical portrait. It’s designed for artists who wish to see and paint realistically. It will be especially valuable to students who have experience drawing with charcoal on paper. We’ll start with a monochrome underpainting- then move into limited palette painting. Each session will begin with a brief lecture followed by work directly with a model. Friendly and encouraging critiques are provided throughout the weekend. A discussion of tools and materials will be included.
