Simplified Beginnings-Painting the Head from Life in Three Colors

If you’ve drawn and painted portraits from photographs but felt intimidated to work from a live model, this one-day class is for you. We will approach Painting the model simply, concentrating on basic proportions of the head without concern for capturing a perfect likeness. With a three-color palette, we will divide the head into light and shadow. We will strive to clearly define values in color by mixing 3 values for the light and two values for the shadow using the three colors plus white. Jean will help you mix beautiful flesh tones in a simple way. Focus will be on creating a strong three-dimensional form and a believable representation of the head. Join Jean for a fun, friendly and informative day where you will receive individual attention to the areas you struggle with most. Let this award-winning painter help you bring your skills to a new level. www.jeanhildebrant.com
