The Classic Self-Portrait

Delve into the relationships between shapes, objects and hues that you see in the mirror without struggling to recreate the scene in front of you with each new session. First you'll make a value exercise depicting layers of light and shadows surrounding a ball before advancing to a self-portrait consisting of oil paints in a double primary palette (a warm and cool version of each primary, plus white). Along the way you'll learn to how to seamlessly blend wet and dry paint and incorporate valuable details that bring your portrait to life.
