In this 3-day workshop, Hsin-Yao will share his complete process from beginning to finishing a portrait from life. Students will paint in oils from live models on each day, developing structure and an expressive style using mass, value, texture and color. Learn to see and simplify values, create form, and understand edge control and chroma, using expressive and bold brushwork to control your composition and create dramatic portraiture.

Hsin-Yao will teach you how to organize your palette to mix realistic colors, values, and temperatures for different skin types and easy strategies for achieving an accurate likeness in your portraiture. Hsin-Yao will demonstrate three oil painting starting methods including simple way to start and the last day painting without drawing. Hsin-Yao will assist you one on one during the whole workshop.
