Portrait Painting Masterclass
Sunday, 16 April 2023, 10 am to 4 pm
Location: Gasworks Arts Park
The Art and Craft Room
21 Graham Street, Albert Park, Victoria.
All levels of artistic ability are welcome. Explore your portrait painting skills in a safe, non-judgemental environment.
Jaq will demonstrate her process of working from a photo to create a portrait. You will look at blocking in the form and capturing a likeness, modelling, tone, and colour.
Bring a photo of a loved one or someone you would love to paint. And if you don’t have anything, Jaq can provide some fantastic reference material so that you can create a beautiful work of art while developing techniques. But if you can provide your own reference, it’s an excellent opportunity to create a special portrait of someone you love.
You will learn each step:
- starting with a tonal ground
- what to keep and take out of the photo reference, so it’s your own art
- blocking in the portrait
- colour mixing
- effective techniques
- ensuring you have the likeness and essence of the person
- tying everything together
- varnish options
Basic materials are provided, and you are also welcome to supplement with your own if you like.
(We can chat about this prior to the workshop :))
Snacks will be provided for morning tea, and there’s a lovely cafe at Gasworks where you can purchase lunch during the lunch break.
