Here are two shots from todays workshop in Warrenton. We worked from a photo and realized that a four hour class was not enough time. We did cover in depth how to build realistic color in flesh and features using pastels and how to get a likeness by accurate measurements. I demonstrated eyes, nose, ears and mouth, and each student did the same while I gave them one on one instruction as they worked. My next workshop will build upon what was learned today and in the next workshop each student will do a full portrait from a photo they bring in. OH, and we will have healthy mid day snacks!
