In this 2 hour and 30 minute class, New York based artist and teacher Kristy Gordon will take you through the stages to developing a portrait painting in oils using photographic reference. The class was filmed in a workshop that she taught, so you will feel as if you’re right inside the classroom with her!

You will learn how to tone your canvas before you begin and how to use oil paints so that they’re fun and easy. Kristy will walk you through measuring techniques that will ensure that you get accurate proportions and a good structure to your portrait.

Next you will move to color and concentrate on big form modeling.  There’s a special focus on glazing in this class. You’ll learn how to construct the eyes, nose, mouth and ears by glazing to fine-tune the details.

Please download the attached files, which include handouts that describe the construction of the features, a supplies list, a full palette handout, as well as my source photo, which you can work from if you would like.

Upon completion of this class you will have a portrait painting which you are proud of.

The beginner will learn fundamental principles such as how to mix colors and render form modeling. The more advanced student will discover how to take their work to the next level and achieve the finish that they desire.
