Painting portraits of children can be challenging not only because of their subtle features but also because of their tendency to move. Join Louis as he guides students through his process of painting children. He will demonstrate in the morning by painting a child from life. After the demo students will all practice painting from life as he makes his way through the room giving individual instruction. Louis will go through tips and tricks that help students navigate through the difficulties of a child’s pose while trying to capture children’s likenesses and color from life. There will be discussions about the child’s structure and how to capture their subtle identifying markers, as well as pitfalls that people usually have when painting children. There will also be talks on the concept of form and color, as well as effectively using visual aids.
