Painting the Head
Course Dates: 2nd Feb 2018 (Friday)
Painting the head is more than just about getting a likeness. It is about form, and expression, the direction of the mark, overlapping layers, the flesh like quality of paint being pushed and pulled around the form. It is about the gaze, the character of the pose, the turn of the head, the angle of the neck, the light. Making quick studies as well as some longer ones, you will be experimenting with marks and materials, as well as observing the model, throughout the day to make a series of vibrant responses to the subject..
