Likeness through Abstraction

Likeness through Abstraction

In this workshop we will concentrate on representing a likeness through large shapes. By using this step by step approach, the complexities of painting a portrait are simplified to the very basics. By making large shapes progressively smaller, students will begin placing simplified versions of the features until they have a fully developed portrait. The color palette will remain limited and students will see how to achieve many different “flesh” colors with very few colors on the palette. www.sethhaverkamp.com
