Acrylics In Portraiture | Robyn Bauer

The genre of portraiture has never lost its appeal.

Looking at the face to analyse the structure, interpreting shape and colour to describe the form in a modern way. We will use brush strokes and colour to describe what we see.

The alchemy of one person’s eye and hand rendering a likeness of another person and somehow capturing an elusive and unnameable quality is something many artists aspire to.

There are some skills that can be taught and learned on the journey to attaining this.

We will be working from a live model for this workshop

What will I learn?

  • Some historical background about the genre of portraiture
  • How light describes volume
  • An analysis of the structure/anatomy of the head and face. (We will have the benefit of a live model to work from, although participants will approach painting in a contemporary way.)
  • Methods of rendering with acrylic paint / the importance of brushstrokes
  • Colour mixing as it relates to the portrait.

Who is this workshop suitable for?
