Portrait Painting
Instructor: Lea Colie Wight
Location: Norsworthy-Bailey Gallery, Shreveport LA
Monday - Friday
April 27 — May 1, 2020
Time: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Tuition: $625

This workshop will focus on the principles and practice essential to achieve a convincing, dimensional and well executed portrait in oils. These principles will be analyzed in a logical sequence beginning with block-in and continuing through fine tuning color and value. This is an information-packed workshop geared to the experienced painter.

The workshop will cover breaking down the painting process into stages and building the painting through awareness of main angles, masses, structure, anatomical landmarks, values and color relationships, edges and creating a focal point. Working with fabric will also be covered. The workshop will include a morning demo covering the day’s work. I anticipate scheduling two poses depending on the complexity of the chosen composition. This will allow the workshop students ample time to take a painting through the finishing stage.

Working with an awareness of stages and focusing on specific information necessary to each stage will allow the painter to be in control of their canvas.
