The goal of this workshop is to provide students with information necessary to execute and develop a portrait painting successfully by examining its two integral components - form and color.

Through exercises in closed grisaille and color studies, the instructor introduces information and concepts on facial structures, relative value and color relationships.

Students begin the workshop focusing on construction of the portrait with accurate linear proportions, structure development and, later, form development with well-calibrated value relationship. Once students gain proficiency in form development, they shift their focus to color where basic principles of color relationship and color calibration are dealt with to enable students to accurately depict the complexion of the model and lighting situation in the environment.

Later in the week, students have the opportunity to bring together skills they learn from previous days and apply them to a two-to-three-day painting. Instruction includes demos, lectures and individual critique at students’ easels.

This workshop is open to all painting students with a good drawing foundation.

Studio Incamminati graduate and instructor JaFang Lu received the 2012 Leeway Foundation for Art and Change Grant. She holds a Bachelors of Art from the City College of New York University. See JaFang’s work at JaFangLu.com
