Expressive Portraits and Figures

Workshop Description The most successful paintings go beyond mere rendering; they create an emotional response in the viewer. Explore the secrets of masters like Degas, Sargent, and Fechin as you work from the live model You will learn how to: • Achieve high art rather than mere rendering • Free yourself from the literal • Create drama • Maximize Suggestion • Achieve glowing, realistic skin tone • Simplify values • Avoid “unpleasant” detail • Capture expression William will demonstrate in oil and pastel. We will also view a slide show of masterworks that embody these principles. Expect your work to become fresher, looser, and more painterly!
