Here the portrait is getting closer to completion. I started to add more detail to the chair and jacket. I am working mostly on the right side of the chair. I plan to go back into the face and hair and finish the jacket with glazes and final highlights.
Painting done with my student in Saguaro Nat’l Park (west).
Portrait in progress, shown in frame.
Here the students are painting a portrait from a model. Emphasis is on starting a portrait by blocking in with paint and wiping out the lights. Capturing a likeness quickly using tonal values, prior to adding color.
Students painting in studio class.
