Workshop Overview (6 Sessions):
Paintings that are as fresh as hot biscuits are oft painted with an economy of succinct, expressive brush strokes rendered with a sympathetic correspondence to the underlying form and structure of the head. Michael Britton’s six session Zoom workshop begins by introducing you to the practice of spotting color values; a tactile practice of rendering three-dimensional form with colour rather than the common illustrative narration.
You’ll be studying Sargent’s understood methodology of portrait painting vis-a-vis copying his engaging portrait of Carmella Bertagna (1879) life-sized.
The first session is focused on the Ebauche: the initial blocking in and colour spotting. The successive sessions are focused on the various passages of the Pentimento to develop form and to set up the final flourishes of bravura brushstrokes.
