Ellen Cooper, a signature Portrait Society of America portrait artist offers this intensive five-day workshop designed to provide a solid foundation in the process of painting a portrait from start to finish. Topics covered include accuracy of proportions and drawing, tonal study/grisaille, achieving a likeness and facial expression, creating form and dimension, understanding light shadow and tone, and improving observational skills to see color and value relationships. We will also address the pose, lighting, background and composition. Demos will include how to organize and use the palette of colors and how to mix luminous flesh tones. The workshop opens with a welcome reception in the Artist's personal Studio, followed by five-days, 6 hours each of painting froma model at Heron Crest Studios. More info:
