Tina Garrett Workshop

April 6, 2018

ARC Associate Living Masterâ„¢ and award winning artist, Tina Garrett, is holding a 5-Day Painting the Portrait from Life workshop at The Florence Studio in Italy.

Beginners on all levels are welcome to participate. In this 5 day format, Tina will share her complete process for beginning and finishing a portrait from life. 

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 two easy strategies for achieving an accurate likeness in your portraiture. Tina will demonstrate three oil painting starting methods including open grisaille, accurate color block-in and Tina's favorite, selective start. Together you will paint a completed portrait from life. 

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. 

The workshop runs from September 10 - 14, 2018 at The Florence Studio, Borgo SS. Apostoli, 18, Florence, Italy 50123.
