Child portrait underpainting
Afternoon: PAINTING CHILDREN FROM PHOTOGRAPHS
Much as I like to encourage people to paint from life, there are some subjects that just don't sit still! Children and babies sometimes just have to be painted from a photo. In this course I will show you how to capture the likeness of children while keeping the painting fresh and lively. You will learn how to capture those subtle skin tones and the fleeting expressions of childhood and infancy. 1 pm to 4 pm. $200.

Workshop: PAINTING IN THE BOSTON SCHOOL TRADITION

Thistledown
At the flowering of the golden age of American painting, a group of young artists traveled to Paris to study with the masters. There they encountered the Impressionists. These artists brought home a painting style which is the synthesis of Classical drawing and Impressionist color. You may recognize their names: R. H. Gammell, Edmund Tarbell, William McGregor Paxton, Jean-Leon Gerome, and Paul Delaroche.
Their art laid the groundwork for excellence in American Impressionism, and their instruction has carried this tradition to generations of American artists. I studied this method under Robert Douglas Hunter, who studied under R.H. Gammell.
I wish to offer this knowledge to you. This intensive three-day workshop will cover drawing, form and volume, color, light and air, composition and brushwork. Most importantly of all, I want to help you learn to see.
Workshop Details: July 15, 16, and 17, 9 am-4 pm, in Warehouse 521's beautiful creative space in Nashville, TN. $375.
Only 3 slots left!
