Red Stone Farm Studio announces upcoming September 2017 workshop:
Jeffrey Hein Portrait Painting Workshop
Monday Sept. 18 to Friday Sept. 22
“There are artists that are master draftsmen, who can capture the intricacies and the details of movement, light, line and shadow that comprise a painting in a manner that is mathematical and precise. Then there are expressionistic artists who with their brushstrokes can better capture the emotional essence of a person or the aura of a scene without conveying every detail. Finding an artist that can do both is rare, but Hein possesses that type of talent.”
In this portrait painting workshop Jeff Hein will discuss creating a concept, formulating good composition and designing of marks, strokes, shape and color. Jeff will also break down the formal process of painting a head into its most basic parts; drawing, value and color.
Jeff and students will each do a single portrait over this 5-day workshop. Each morning Jeff will demonstrate. Students will paint in the afternoons. Workshop will be limited to six artists so Jeff can critique and assist on an individual basis to help each student complete the workshop a better portrait and figure painter.
Students will witness and learn the entire process Jeff uses to complete a portrait.
