Portrait Drawing Workshops

The ability to consistently get a remarkable likeness in your portrait drawing can be learned. But there is a skill-set that must be acquired. The first is the ability to strike the arabesque, that is the entire outside shape of the head. The arabesque encompasses the overall shape and proportion. From there, one constructs the portrait by fixing the facial proportions and then blocking in the initial tone.

Even at this very early stage the likeness of the sitter will begin to emerge in the portrait drawing.

The Practice of Tone for Portrait Artists Instant Download Workshop for Intermediate and Advanced

The Practice of Tone for Portrait Artists is a four-hour workshop that demonstrates the entire process of rendering form. Working solely within the facial arena I begin by quickly sketching in the features, followed by blocking-in the primary light/dark pattern before embarking on the long process of applying sanguine conte, stumping it in and then delicately lifting it with painterly strokes of a kneaded eraser.

Painting Workshops

Most painters striving to seek out a better art practice are stymied by the lack of available cohesive training. Most acquire their painting education piecemeal, whether it be a disjointed series of workshops or a 1 hour video that offers a few 'tips' The unfailing result is a piecemeal understanding. Hardly a sound foundation upon which to build your career.

There are two components to building your foundation: The first is knowledge-based, the nuts and bolts of terminology (whose sole purpose is the expression of implied intentions), color and composition theory, anatomy, pigments and mediums, etc.

The second is your practicum. This is your studio work where you digest and put into practice your acquired knowledge. The purpose of a sound foundation in drawing and painting is to give you the means to steadily push back the limits of your ability.

Painting Clara Serena | Toward a Professional Oil Painting Practice All Levels

Master paintings, the great ones of which Clara Serena is well within the upper ranks, change as they are seen over the decades of one’s life. We experience great works of art differently when we are older than in our youth.

Studying and copying master works is the most efficient training that one can pursue: beginners can be assured that they are on the right track and advanced artists will discover deeper layered meanings and techniques.

Painting Clara Serena takes you through the entire process from the preparatory drawing to the underpainting, to the abozzo (the initial coloring in) to the final painting.

Composition, Notan and Patterning

COMPOSITION, the NOTAN & PATTERNING for Painters

The four principles of composition are: the harmonious divisions of pictorial space (this is Symphonic Composition, also known as Dynamic Symmetry), the Notan, the Patterning and Color.

Notan is a Japanese word that means light/dark harmony. It is one of the four principles of pictorial design that literally stick paintings to the wall and grab the viewer. When paintings work in black and white--they work!

Patterning is the arrangment of shapes that define your subject and narrative (the story you want to tell). A good Notan is fully dependant upon a strong patterning.

For every artist who strugges with wishy-washy paintings and strives to become a better painter there is no surer route than acquiring an understanding of composition.

Paintings built upon a solid composition of harmonious unity project a directness and simplicity that is felt on both a conscious and subconscious level. The viewer's eye is able to take in the entire composition at once and be moved by it.
