Portraiture in Watercolor
Joanna Barnum
Saturday, Nov. 14, 2015
from 10 AM to 4:00 PM

Kalinda Eating a Banana by Joanna Barnum
In this one day workshop, learn how to build layers of warm and cool washes over a preliminary drawing to create naturalistic skin tones and build the illusion of three dimensional form, creating lively and expressive portrait paintings. The workshop will include a step by step demo and the opportunity to practice what you have seen. Students will work from personal photo reference or provided sample photos. Suitable for all levels, basic watercolor and drawing skills recommended.
