CEPN 278: Painting the Portrait

Explore portraiture through 'pushing paint'. Each class will include a brief presentation on techniques of glazing, underpainting and building textures, as well as underlying anatomy, followed by painting from the live model. You will focus on developing your own individual approach, whether realistic, expressive or abstract, as you work on self-directed projects in portraiture. Classes will be supplemented with individual and group critiques, brief demonstrations and slide presentations.
