THE MODEL RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU - PAINT A SELF PORTRAIT (acrylic or watercolor)
with ALICIA HARVEY
Saturday, February 17, 2018
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
You need a live person to work out how the nose looks in window light,
how much of the shaded eye has detail outside in mid-day. Portraits offer endless challenges of how, how much, where.
Don't spend cash on a model--set up a mirror and make those faces yourself, tilt the head just right, put your nose in that shadow you've been working to solve. You are the PERFECT model and you are always around just at the right moment.
Alicia will start at the beginning of how to set yourself up as a model for portrait painting. All the masters painted themselves because they were always available--the model who never leaves.
Lighting, tools, the process of posing and looking and painting--all these questions will be discussed and answered. Come with questions and lots of room in your notebook to write down the ideas that get you painting portraits, self-portraits, at home.
