Creating Watercolor Portraits from PhotosMichael Holter

Many artists have an unnatural aversion to painting people, yet we know there is an attraction to the human form when viewing a painting. Not only does including people in artwork add interest and connection to the viewer, it takes the same skills as painting a landscape or still life. The method Michael demonstrates and instructs you in will take you through the necessary steps to achieve your goals and give you tools to create a well-structured representation while still allowing for the expressive use of color and brushstroke.   

Michael's workshop will include insightful discussion of important aspects of figurative work such as composition and capturing a mood. You will spend time on exercises designed to heighten your techniques. There will be real-time demonstrations as well as high-speed video demos of Michael working in his studio. Students of all levels and interests will enjoy Michael's personal and up-front style of teaching as well as his inspirational approach to his work. Students will leave prepared and challenged to move on to a new level of confidence in painting portraits in watercolor.
