In this class I will be demonstrate 3 different portraits. The 1s  portrait will be all oils. This project is a classical way of working with oils.  I will start with an underpainting using raw umber and white. The next step is to complete the portrait with color. The 2nd project I will be working with charcoal at first, then adding transparent yellow iron oxide for color. I go back and forth with oil color and charcoal. I then make a mixture of black adding white to get several values. This is a very loose way of making expressive marks. The 3rd project I work on watercolor paper I work with charcoal, pastels and oil bars for another very expressive portrait. Nearly 8 hours of video tape.

This is a self-paced class and all the videos are downloadable as well.
