Visiting Artist Workshop


Ages: 18 - No Limit

Ability: All

Expertise: Painting, Art and Color Theory

I first began to decipher John Singer Sargent's method when I was painting at the Palette and Chisel in the late 80's. His spectacular painting of Eleonora Duse enabled me to see how brilliant and simple his technique was. We will use this painting as a valuable teaching tool during this two-day workshop. We will learn to see as Sargent saw, breaking the subject down into the essence of structure and corresponding basic value arrangements. The solid foundation of a Sargent block-in is underneath even his most elaborate portraits. By internalizing his basic starting technique, you will be able to capture the physical and even psychological look of your subject in a much more rapid fashion.

SPECIAL NOTE: Materials list will be emailed to students
