Painting the Portrait

Main Street Art Center

Lake Zurich, IL

Friday, Saturday & Sunday

 March 22, 23 & 24, 2024

9:00 am – 4:00 pm


This workshop is for anyone wanting to further their skills of painting the alla prima (wet on wet) portrait. Nothing beats painting from life to learn to see color and form, but most of us don’t always have a live model at the ready. Let’s face it – there are times that painting from life isn’t practical. This workshop will consist of demos, exercises, and personal instruction using photo references. It is designed to give you the tools to take back with you to your own easel. There will be discussion, handouts, demos, and plenty of time at the easel with one-on-one instruction.
