Wouldn’t you love to learn how to portray people in your paintings?

Portraits can an be a very powerful way to express your emotions and the human beauty. It is a language on it’s own, that doesn’t use words to communicate.

During the first day we will focus on values making a monochromatic portrait. On the second day we will add color to our composition and we will learn how to work on a loose way as well as realistic.

Come and learn about facial features, color, proportion and different ways of approaching the process of painting a portrait. You will go home with two finished portraits and a greater understanding of the subject!

I hope to see you there!!
