Portrait Demo Friday November 15

I hope you'll join me for a 3 hour, start-to-finish portrait demo at the Calgary School of Art on Friday, November 15 from 6 - 9pm.  There will be wine, cheese and loads of information.  

My model will be posed under dramatic, coloured light which will allow me to show the ways in which the temperature of light alters the local colour of objects. We see this effect every time we look at a person on a sunny day or in the artificial light of an interior.  Colours are constantly in flux, showing us different aspects of their character with every change in the light that falls on them -which can be confusing!

So I'll tackle the complexity of the colour of light while I demonstrate the aspects of portraiture: from accurate proportion to how to paint individual features such as eyes and the ever-tricky mouth (noses pretty much just take care of themselves, as you'll find out).  

To register, please contact the Calgary School of Art.

Thanks, Doll! I appreciate the positive energy.
Now just hold off the snow, please!
