Expressive Watercolors: The Head and Figure
February 19, 20 & 21, 2024
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
3-Day Workshop $475
This dynamic workshop is designed to enable participants of all levels to quickly gain confidence in approaching the head and figure in a more spontaneous, intuitive, and expressive way.
Demonstrations, class instruction, individual assistance, “show and tell”, and a series of “fun” exercises, will weave into class painting time. Unique color application, translucent flesh tones, features, the essence of children, and figures will all be covered. All levels will benefit, and help is available to those who are new to the portrait and figure. No Fear!!
Students will have an opportunity to work from their photographs or Janet’s. Our goals will be to “see” in new ways -- bringing “life” and interpretation to the portrait and figure. Janet will provide some drawing “helps” for anyone who is new to painting people. On the last day of the workshop – a model will be available to pose for figure paintings.
