Project Description

Portrait & Figurative Painting with Oscar Peterson

Students will learn the principles of portrait and figure painting through observation of live models. Various methods for depicting a realistic likeness in acrylic, oil, and/or gouache will be explored and each step of starting, establishing, and finishing a painting will be demonstrated.  Facial features, anatomy, light, shadow and proportion will be covered.  There will be at least one long pose during the ten weeks of class, in order to complete a fully realized painting.
