Portrait Painting (Oils, Model) Workshop with Sophie Ploeg
Explore portrait painting in oils, but this time with a life model (dressed). After a short warm-up we will use one pose only and work on that all day. We go through initial setup, blocking in, and working into details and we will touch upon all topics that come along during the painting process. I will paint along with you, while explaining the various stages of an alla prima (painted in one go) oil portrait. We will discuss colour choices, brush marks, colour mixing, drawing, shapes and likeness.
