This one-day workshop will focus on exploring the human form with local skin tones as seen in the works of Singer Sargent and Lucien Freud. Alla prima techniques and practical methods of mixing skin tones will be emphasized, based on a refined version of Sargent’s palette.
Participants may use any medium including oils, acrylics, pastels and watercolour. In the morning, we will warm up with gesture poses before engaging with sustained poses. During the afternoon session, artists can concentrate on a long pose.
The $150 fee includes a simple lunch as well as models’ fees. Pre-registration at www.countyartworkshops.com is required.
