$900 (5 day workshop)
$600 (3 day workshop)
$400 (2 day workshop)

Join me for this special 5-day workshop in the studio of the remarkable and inimitable Everett Raymond Kinstler.  As we immerse ourselves in his art, books, studio artifacts, and breathtaking studio, I will lead students through my methods of portrait painting.  The workshop is divided into two stages: Alla Prima Portraiture and Extended Portraiture.

Friday and Saturday, students will study the techniques of alla prima portraiture.  We will consider topics such as color mixing to achieve believable fleshtones, design, paint application, and adapting to a model that may be moving or animated.  

Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, students will be introduced to my studio method of completing paintings, from drawing/transferring to a canvas, mixing color and building up the layers of paint, and using the paint to create an anatomical dimension through mark making.

The workshop is designed so that students may take either topic individually, though taking both will allow the student to understand how each technique and philosophy of painting informs and strengthens the other.

I hope you can join me as we remember the remarkable experiences of one of the world's most brilliant portrait artists, and become inspired together as we work in his beautiful studio.  We will drink wine, share stories, look at wonderful art, and paint.
