2-Day Portrait from Life & Photos

Tina will share her secrets to painting heirloom quality portraiture from both life and photos. Tina will demonstrate two different starting methods, including monochrome underpainting and selective start. Tina will show you how to paint from, pose, and light the live model, and she will teach you the best practices for forming successful relationships with professional models and happy commission clients. Tina will demonstrate painting from photographs vs. painting from life, teaching strategies using Photoshop, best practices when painting from prints, and taking great photos from the start. Tina will demonstrate the processes she employs in all her works, focusing on composition, values, chroma, edges, mark making, and most importantly, how to control your palette for accurate values and color.
