PORTRAIT PAINTING IN ACRYLICS
Students will learn a variety of techniques for handling this fast-drying, very forgiving medium, from color mixing and layering to handling brushes. The instructor will guide you through the step-by-step process of creating a portrait in acrylic, then transferring subjects to canvas either freehand or by other methods. Students will experiment with composition, negative space, backgrounds, mapping out the face, light and shadows, hair and clothes, and the finishing touches that make a good portrait great. Demonstrations will be given covering each individual element of the face, and students will learn the interesting tricks that make an appealing portrait. Focus will be on color mixing and getting a good likeness of the subject, and discovering how exciting and satisfying portrait painting can be.
