Material List Here

In these sessions we will explore value-based “light on form” painting methods to create expressive, professional level portraits. Using live models, the focus will be on gaining a deeper understanding of observable values to achieve form, character and likeness. We will paint one finished portrait in our two days together. Robert will also present a few salient drawing and painting exercises in the morning sessions. Robert will teach you to think like a painter, presenting a short demo, paint-along.  Honest observation and careful analysis of forms will be the key.  Concrete, practical application, rather than meaningless theory, will be the order of the day.  The instruction will be tailored to allow for a deepening of the individual’s unique approach and response to the subject at hand. Expect lots of individual attention and nothing less than a major epiphany regarding how the subtle manipulation of light on form actually works in depicting realistic subjects. See class and workshop description for more of what we’ll be discovering together. All levels are encouraged to participate.
