In this 2-day workshop, Annette will guide students through her practical approach for drawing and painting the portrait in watercolor working from a live model. Annette will cover how to draw a convincing head through observation of facial structure, features, and shadow pattern. She will also explain materials, techniques for handling color, mixing flesh tones, brushwork, and controlling edges. Also discussed will be, understanding water to paint ratio, and how to control the medium when painting vertically. There will be a demo each morning with time for students to draw and paint in the afternoon.
