This workshop covers simplifying the head through large shadow and light shapes, studying color through simplified color masses and studying form, anatomy and facial structure through long pose.

The class will begin with demos in the mornings explaining the concepts for the day followed by studies of those concepts with critiques. The last four days will begin with demos in the morning followed by two daylong duotone portraits and finally one two-day portrait in full color.
