ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
Clothing makes a statement, and it does this in paintings as well as in life. The colors and style of
apparel worn help define the feeling of a portrait or genre painting. In this workshop, the model will be in a costume and setting that presents both a consistent feeling and a number of painting challenges. Learn to paint unusual textures, such as fur, metal, glass, jewels. Learn to paint the draped folds in clothing to reveal both the fabric’s texture and the model’s figure beneath.
9:00-10:00 Powerpoint presentation of clothing in art history, while the model gets into costume
and the setting with drapery is created. Then Woolley will demonstrate how to begin the painting.
10:00-12:00 Students will get their easel spots and start their painting.
1:00 – 4:00 Demo continues for ½ hour, showing how to proceed in developing the painting.
