During the course of the 3 day portrait painting in workshop, students will focus on the elements that make up a powerful and emotional depiction of the human being. During the class the students will produce a portrait with hands in oil in the traditional alla prima techniques of the Repin Academy of Arts. The students will focus on developing a dynamic composition, figuring out important color and value relationships, all the while emphasizing accurate drawing. The main emphasis will be on stressing the character of the model, working to carry it through all the elements of the painting, from establishing a likeness and expressing the pose to creating a composition that will emphasize the emotional qualities of the sitter.
