This is a unique workshop opportunity to focus closely on painting the figure, working with a live model in various situations. Procedural painting skills in the alla prima tradition will stress speed and accuracy with emphasis on mass, tonal values, relative texture and unity.
Outdoor figure work in the landscape (weather permitting), indoor figure work with costuming and drapery and also painting the portrait are included. This allows the students to explore different types of light and how it will affect shape, mass, values, colors, and edges under various conditions.
Areas that will be covered are: accurate drawing and drawing concepts, values, anatomy, understanding form, learning to work with the model in the most effective way, composition, design concepts, color harmony, flesh tones, light and its effects, light temperature and edges in your paintings. Plenty of individual attention will be given to each student. John Kilroy will give procedural lectures and he demonstrates daily.
Who will paint your portrait? See a wide variety of portraiture styles and materials from 62 contemporary classics. CSOPA's largest exhibition to date was selected from a record number of quality submissions by area artists available for your commission or portrait consultation.
