Capturing a likeness is among the most elusive yet emotionally satisfying of artistic endeavors and a good drawing is undoubtedly the most critical component in achieving a good result. In this four-day workshop, Joshua will walk students through the steps necessary to create a luminous, in-direct portrait painting from life, beginning with a drawing in graphite and white chalk. Demonstration and critiques will center on the elements of form and how to understand and achieve the illusion of three-dimensions. By better understanding the importance of form, the student will gain new insight into value, structure, expression, and indeed, color. Each morning session will begin with a thorough portrait demonstration from the model including a dialogue of all key concepts, while the afternoon will focus on personal critiques. Students will work on the same pose each day. www.joshualarock.com
