Online Alla Prima Portriat Painting Workshop

July 18, 2020



Come learn Alla Prima techniques for painting the portrait. Alla Prima means paintings done in one session. Noah will show you classical techniques for painting a realistic portrait. Noah will teach the use of plumb lines, comparative measurement, and tilt angle to find correct proportions. Noah will show how he mixes colours and talk about how he thinks about colour when painting. Working from live clothed models, you will learn how to start your painting, see and record shapes clearly and simply, and model form by carefully observing the properties of light.
You will work on one painting in the workshop. Noah will demo from 1-2pm and students will work for 2-5pm.

Noah will live stream his demo to start the class. Students will work at home from a portrait photo that will be emailed to each student. Students will email photos of their work in progress during the class and Noah will critique and help each student on the live stream.

You need an internet connection and a computer, laptop or tablet to watch as well as a cell phone with a camera or a digital camera to take pictures of your work and email them to me during the class!

Lots of demos and individual instruction!

All levels of experience welcome but some drawing experience recommended.
