In today’s competitive market of portraiture all professional artists eventually find that it’s necessary to learn how to properly work from photographic reference. In addition to my regular course of instruction, lectures will include how to take good photographic reference shots, lighting and posing your subject, printing your own photos and how to deal with distortion.

For the exacting realism found in my work, most of day one will focus primarily on the drawing aspect of the portrait. Three different photographs of a model will be supplied where the student will choose one to work from. With instruction on the proper use of angles, plumb lines and relative measurement, students will learn how to acquire correct proportions in order to achieve a likeness of the model. As the course continues, this intensive workshop will then focus on painting. Lectures will include basic color theory, how to see and execute correct value relations, proper treatment of edges, and so much more. Demonstrations in watercolor techniques will include wet into wet, glazing, and my signature dry brush technique.
