Includes: Personal instruction and class demos by Dorian Vallejo, two seven hour days with the model and diner at Cafe Gallery.
Although the primary focus of this workshop is portrait painting, the intention is the development of a technique that allows for a free, expressive approach to drawing and painting. Students will be shown how to begin with a gesture and end with a finished result and are welcome to draw or paint as instruction will be offered for both. In addition to personal instruction, in the form of demonstrations, there will also be short lectures. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to observe as Mr. Vallejo paints along with them.
INTRO & EASEL SETUP - MOVIE
I've put together these short movies to help give artists attending the workshop some ideas that may be helpful. If you've painted before you probably already have materials that work for you. I'll suggest some things here but feel free to bring what you have. In general, these are the materials I work with. NOTE: if you buy a French Easel, it comes with a wooden palette. You need to seal the surface of the wooden palette before using it for the first time. I find that shellac (found at any hardware store) works well.
