Painting in oils since 2012, Tina loves to share her knowledge with students, especially the practical methods she uses in her award-winning portraiture. As an instructor, Tina strives to help other artists make the best paintings they've ever made. Tina is a two-time ARC Salon Purchase Prize Winner, three-time Oil Painters of America Online Showcase awardee, an International Artist Magazine People & Figures Grand Prize winner, and a proud Cecelia Beaux Forum Mentor for the Portrait Society of America. This workshop is perfect for anyone struggling with portrait painting.
Learn to see and simplify values, create form, and understand edges and chroma to control your composition and create dramatic portraiture. Tina will teach you how to organize your palette to mix realistic colors, values, and temperatures for different skin types, and how to use two easy strategies in order to achieve an accurate likeness in your portraiture.
Tina will demonstrate three oil painting starting methods, including open grisaille, accurate color wash, and Tina’s favorite, selective start.
Each morning, Tina will demonstrate and lecture. Each afternoon, Tina will work one-on-one with every artist as they paint from the live model. Tina’s goal is to be as generous with her knowledge as possible, walking each student through the concepts so when artists leave her workshops they are able to take their own painting to new heights. All levels welcome!
