International Award Winning Florida Artist

Are you Interested in painting an oil portrait? I generally present a 3-day workshop using the Grisaille method. From the subject in front of you, you will create an under painting using a monochromatic color tone to represent the values. You will then introduce color first with transparent glazes, and then with opaques. The great master artists created beautiful portraits using this technique to attain dimension and a feeling of warmth. To eliminate the intimidation of painting a live person, a doll is setup as shown in the photo (below).
