Classical Faces: The Portrait in Watercolor and Ink
2 Sundays, March 17 & 24
Time : 10:30am-3:30pm
Instructor : Abigail Tulis
Medieval Faces: The Portrait in Watercolor and Ink
This two day workshop, spread over two Sundays, is a combination art history and techniques class. We will begin with an intensive look at how portraits have been drawn in ink and watercolor throughout art history, particularly the Medieval period, noting both the use of material and the methods of simplifying the face while maintaining likeness.
We will work with a model to create a large watercolor portrait study using lines, washes, and hatching to render a simple yet believable image. Turning to the drawings discussed at the beginning as a means to problem solve and raise an awareness of how our choices in technique shape the final image, this workshop will be an opportunity to try new approaches to rendering the face.
