Portrait Painting from Life: An abstract approach to a detailed portrait
Seth is an award-winning, contemporary, figurative painter. In this workshop we will concentrate on representing a likeness through large shapes. By making large shapes progressively smaller, students will begin placing simplified versions of the features, big shapes, until they have a fully developed, portrait. The color palette will remain limited and students will see how to achieve many different "flesh" colors with very few colors on the palette.
In addition, cloth, backgrounds, and finishing paintings will be addressed and demonstrated.
Seth will discuss how this leads directly into a multiple layered studio portrait. Seth will also discuss the similarity between painting from life and from photographs.
