Portraits With Stephanie Kullberg

2,500 kr4,500 kr

We are offering two weekends of portraiture with Swedish artist Stephanie Kullberg. The first weekend will be drawing a portrait in charcoal and the second weekend will be painting a portrait in oil.  We recommend taking both courses for a more comprehensive study of portraiture but you are welcome to choose either of the courses that suite your interests best.

Students will learn to paint a portrait from a live model in a single sitting referred to as ‘Alla Prima’. This technique requires a fast way of working, as the work has to be finished before the first layers have dried. The student will at the end of the workshop have 2 complete paintings. Students will learn about the proportions of the head and face and how to accurately paint the features. We will be working with oil paints exclusively for these exercises. Students will learn how to render the head in terms of form, color, and tone. They will learn how to mix realistic skin colors in order to render human flesh in paint.

Instruction available in English and Swedish.

Please bring 2 canvases prepared for oil painting size 30 x 40 cm. We will provide paint, palettes, brushes, etc. but you are welcome to bring your own.

Class hours: 10:00 – 16:00
