What do I learn in the workshop?

In this workshop you will learn to paint from the real model. You will learn the basics that you need step by step.

The day is always divided into 3 hours theory and practical exercises and 3 hours portrait painting. In the first week you will get an introduction of oil painting. In the second week you finally learn to paint from the portrait in oil. Contents here are handling of oil paint, materials and mixing of colors.

When portraying, we are working mainly weeks of the same model. This gives you practice to understand and give shape, expression and look of the model. Our teachers will teach you how to apply measurement methods to transfer a person with his correct proportions.

How do I start ? How do I manage to represent people realistically? The answers you will find in this workshop. After the initial hurdle has been taken, you go one step further and focus on shadow lines. Step by step you transfer the model. You will also learn to work out shapes through shades and nuances.
