5-Day Painting the Portrait from Life at The Florence Studio in Italy


Beginners an all levels are welcome to participate. In this 5 day format, Tina will share her complete process for beginning and finishing a portrait from life. 

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 and how two easy strategies to achieve an accurate likeness in your portraiture. Tina will demonstrate three oil painting starting methods including open grisaille, accurate color block-in and Tina’s favorite, selective start. Together we will paint a completed portrait from life. 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. 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!
