Discover the starting method that will take your work to new heights! From both life and photos, Tina will demonstrate three oil painting starting methods including open grisaille, accurate color block-in and Tina’s favorite, selective start. Each morning Tina will demonstrate and lecture. Each afternoon, Tina will work one-on-one with every artist as they paint from the live model on days one and two, and from photos on the third day. 
Learn to see and simplify values, create form, and understand edges and chroma to control your composition and create dramatic portraiture.
Tina will teach you how to organize your palette to mix realistic colors, values, and temperatures for different skin types.
Tina’s goal is to be as generous with her knowledge as possible, walking each student through the concepts so when artists leave her workshops they are able to take their own painting to new heights. All levels welcome!

Workshop fee is $350.00 plus model fee. Contact the Scottsdale Artists' School to reserve your spot. Space is limited.
