Portrait Painting & Composition I
Portrait painting & composition is an intensive course designed to provide a comprehensive grasp of the structure, resemblance and essence of the sitter. We focus on the anatomical proportions, volume, and scale of the subject. Students will use chiaroscuro, sfumato and other light modeling techniques.
Composition is considered in all disciplines of fine art, yet it’s often only considered to be a tool, technique or method rather than a discipline in itself.
Explore composition from classical antiquity to contemporary times. Learn about aesthetics, divine geometry and other important elements within composition.
Students will both draw and paint in this course.
