This course provides an introductory yet systematic approach to portrait painting step by step. The tutor will lead the students to study the structure of head, facial feature, form & volume, linear & painterly manner, thick & thin application and color balance. Great works from both classical & modern period will be discussed. Oil is the main medium, and pencil or charcoal is used for study and exploration. Photograph is used mostly for reference, and life model will be arranged in some sessions. Students will be able to have a keen eye for appreciation, acquire better technique, and to own painted portrait for the beloved one after the course.
