New York Portrait Artist Workshop Demonstration – Day 1

Megan9

Today was the first day of my Oil Portrait Workshop at the School of Visual Arts in NYC, my last workshop of the 2013 calendar year. After a brief introduction, I spent the day explaining and demonstrating my procedure for the wash-in, the painting’s foundation layer (see above). My mantra: work large to small.

Below you can see the steps I took:

For the next two days my lucky students will be working on their wash-ins. On Thursday, I’ll attempt my first color layer.

Until next time…

    Susie and I had a model come in yesterday and did our wash-in!!! I really like seeing this in stages as it reminds me how to “see”. Thanks, Marvin.
