This online paint-along (or demo for those who prefer to watch) will focus on the elements of the portrait, beginning with a tutorial on the construction of the face. We will then proceed to work with colors and forming the necessary elements to paint the image. Cynthia will use both knife and brush per attendees' request during the workshop. Cynthia will be using oils for this demo but may do a quick mock-up in pastels if requested by attendees. Attendees may use medium of choice.
- Canvas, panel or heavy watercolor paper (if using water-based medium) - suggested sizes: 11x14, 12x16, square if you want, or 16x20 optional
