Explore the secrets of creating dramatic portraiture in this oil painting workshop with ARC Associate Living Master, Tina Garrett. Each morning Tina will demonstrate from the live model. Each afternoon, students will paint as Tina closely observes and works with artists individually. On day one students will learn Tina’s easy principles for accurate drawing in a monochrome painting. On day two students will learn to mix an accurate and dramatic color palette and apply paint in the Selective Start method. Discover how to create strong compositions using design, values, chroma and edges. Learn how to control your palette for accurate values and color. Learn how to pose the model, and set up lighting for a successful start and a dramatic finish. Tina will offer a questions and answer session focusing on pricing your work for private commissions and PR/marketing.
