with Richard Jordan
Trees are grand living things and we relate to them on an emotional level. As artists, we should feel something when we paint trees, yet often they are handled as props or filler. In this special workshop, Richard will demonstrate his approach to painting trees and how you can give them life and a believable presence in your work.

In this workshop students will learn the basic principles to drawing the Human Portrait. Students will work from a photograph of their choice, so they can continue to practice on their own. Students will learn the dimensions, anatomy and structure of the head and facial features when drawing a portrait. There will also be a strong emphasis on values, and edges.

This workshop is open to all levels of experience. While we will be doing some serious learning, it is my goal that you just have fun and feel comfortable to explore and experiment. I will be presenting my techniques for creating thick, bold impressionistic works, using both brush and palette knife. Learn to loosen up and create paintings filled with energy!
