Darla Nolan will be teaching a 2-day portraiture workshop with the painting medium of your choice.
Darla’s workshop is designed to help you see and paint shapes and colors. It is not Darla’s intent to change your painting style, but to help you be the best painter you can be. She concurs with what an old Master once said to a student, “You want to be a better painter… paint 100 paintings of a similar subject!” She believes that’s great advice for all of us!
Day One: Learn the basics of switching from line drawing to value drawing, lost line and found line, light (chiaro), dark (oscuro) and sfumato (smoke). Drawings will be completed in rust Conte crayon, with stomps and kneaded erasers, on drawing paper or Mi teintes colored paper. Supplies will be provided.
Day Two: The second day, please bring:
1. a “lightly traced” portrait of your choice (please select one person, head and shoulders only) on 140 #, 11 x 14 watercolor paper or canvas, and
2. your watercolors or acrylics, and related supplies. You will learn which colors make the best skin tones in these mediums.
