Meta4 Gallery presents Contemporary Portraiture

Date:Saturday, February 10 & Sunday, February 11, 2018
Location:    Meta4 Gallery (164 Hunter St. W., Peterborough)
Using a photograph of your choice, you’ll develop a painted portrait in oils in just one weekend. The style can be loose and gestural, or highly realistic (steps will be discussed as to how to achieve this beyond the weekend workshop). Facial structure and anatomy will be briefly discussed, mixing skin tones with a simple limited palette, backgrounds and composition will also be addressed. This direct, simple approach will allow the participant to adapt to alla prima painting, or more finished studio work. All levels welcome. Includes lunch in a local restaurant both days.
