ART/CHESTER-Portrait Painting Workshop with Drew Lantrip
TIME: 11:00 am
to 3:00 pm
Learn and practice the sight-size approach to drawing or painting portraits from life using natural light. This course provides you with eight hours to study a single portrait pose.
Sight-size helps to quickly establish scale and proportion through a direct comparison of your drawing and the model. This enables you to make more accurate judgements about which lines, shapes, and values to render.
The workshop will begin with a brief discussion of notes written by students of John Singer Sargent regarding his painting habits. We will continue to discuss these as we progress as they apply to our portraits.
Bring your supplies and paint a portrait! Contact Jennifer at the gallery to sign up.
