Painting Marathon: Portrait Painting Focus with Joe Santore and Linda Darling

This is an opportunity for serious painters to spend two full weeks focusing in on the figure. The class will be divided into morning and afternoon sessions to accommodate the changing light.   Students will attempt to develop strong images (portraits) through a series of drawings and studies before beginning to paint.  Scale will be stressed and the power of the image in the rectangle. Students will work in oils beginning with a limited palette and eventually building toward a full range color.  The physical process of painting will be stressed especially the idea of paint as flesh.  The tradition of portrait painting will be discussed during the course of the two week and since we have access to a terrific library, images will be easily accessible.  A morning or afternoon trip to the Metropolitan museum will offer students an opportunity for students to look at great portraits directly.  A final critique will take place after the last painting session and everyone is required to attend. Cost: $1,625.
