Oil Portrait Painting: Mixing Skin Tones

If you struggle with mixing up skin tones, this workshop is for you.  You will be guided through how to mix up skin tones, pinpoint value and effectively use warm and cold tones to create a more convincing and 3D resemblance.  By the end of the day, you will have a solid foundation for approaching your portraits in whichever style and medium you choose.

This workshop will focus on the practice of portrait painting, rather than resulting in a finished piece. Suitable for all levels. Some materials will be provided.

Facilitated by Sandra Robinson
