For all levels.

to learn the proportions of the human face.

to learn to mix skin tones.

to understand the importance of light versus dark, bright versus dull.

to complete a small portrait.

Please bring the following:

Paint: titanium white, cadmium red, yellow ochre, cadmium yellow pale, ultramarine blue, burnt umber, cerulean blue, sap green.

Brushes, odorless solvent, linseed oil, palette, rags, palette knives(2), eraser, and pencil (I prefer pastel) to draw the portrait.

An 11 x 14 or 12 x 16 canvas

Please also bring a photo or digital image of a subject. It can be a self portrait or someone else, as long as it is a high quality image of the face, and not a child. Children’s proportions are different from an adult’s. We will leave that for another class!
