Learn how to paint a complete, alla-prima portrait in this exciting two-part demo and workshop.

On Saturday, June 28,  you’ll watch Ingrid demonstrate the painting of an entire portrait, from start to finish.  As she works, Ingrid will thoroughly explain both her process and her materials and answer any questions that you have.

Then, on Sunday, June 29, you’ll paint a portrait of your own in the time-honoured, traditional manner: from  life.  Working from a model ensures both better understanding and better painting: you learn to discern subtle colours, values and colour temperatures without the distortion and simplification of a photo reference.  You’ll see 3-dimensional form easily and learn how to translate it believably to the canvas.

For oil and acrylics.  Demo will be in oil.
