Alla Prima Portrait Painting

date: November 11 - 14

Tuition: $750


This workshop will focus on learning to paint a portrait from life in oil.  Sean uses a very distinct palette, called a “mud-Palette” when working. This palette will be discussed extensively throughout the workshop.  The benefits of working with this palette are value and color control.  Through a simple step-by-step process to portrait painting, Sean will discuss harmony and unity in your final piece, composition, drawing, likeness, organizing your palette, color mixing, value, edges, and producing a completed portrait.
