This one-day workshop will focus on capturing the expressive quality of a face.  There will be discussion of the structure of the face with examples of various artists’ portraits showing different approaches.  Cynthia will demonstrate drawing the structure of the face with oil, then applying color.  Students will first do a series of short studies from different angles with a limited palette in both drawing & painting in order to see and capture the essence of the portrait.  Finally, there will be a 3 hour pose for a longer exploration of the portrait.  The objective is to learn to quickly see and respond to the uniqueness of each facial angle and expression.
