Emerging Artists: Portraiture in Color Study with Rebecca Tait
The event date has passed. Tickets are no longer available to this event.
Portrait Society of America 2009 Certificate of Excellence winner Rebecca Tait and Studio Incamminati upper-level artist Jason Espey guide high-school age students as they focus on the anatomy of the human head, neck, and shoulders, exploring in-depth bones and muscles that affect the portrait artist's work. Human skulls are used as students explore all stages of portraiture from posing the model to sketching studies and painting in oil from a live model. Principles of color theory are taught as artists are trained to “see,” not “think,” color and learn the warm and cool effects of light and its value relationships. By combining this colorist approach with understanding of head structure, young artists gain a solid foundation in oil portraiture.
