Learn how to draw tight and paint loose in this impressionist watercolor painting class! Students will learn fundamental face-drawing skills such as proportion, measurement, plumb lines, Reilly rhythms, and value before drawing basic heads and heads with specific likenesses. A watercolor and gouache demonstration follows and then the portrait painting begins! This class teaches fundamental (more traditional) portraiture skills but also focuses on loose, experimental painting that is very expressive and fun! All supplies included. Please enter through the 5th Street door.
