Portrait Painting Mondays with Michela Mansuino
September 24 - December 17$360
In these six Monday oil portrait painting classes, students will paint from a live model. The same model will pose all five times, so students will build a step by step method from grisaille to duotone to full color rendering. We will be using cool, artificial light and reviewing the dynamics of the light key in color study. Standard canvas size is encouraged, 16 X 20 inches, toned gray. We will be using the 23 color Studio Incamminati palette. Model fees are separate.
