This course is designed to take you through the different stages of the classically painted portrait.With helpful demonstrations and one-to-one teaching, we will de-mystify the classical painting process,starting with a charcoal
drawing created with sight-size measuring (preferred method of the Florence Academy of Art).
This will be transferred to a toned canvas where we will complete the underpainting in browns (Brunaille). Next, we will create a small color study (Bozzetto) in preparation for our final portrait. Limited palette colors will be covered, as well as basic head and facial anatomy. There will also be discussions about the subtleties of capturing facial expression. This
is a ten week course, with a live model. Class size is limited to five students (with a minimum of three students).
