About This Workshop

ARC Living Master, Tina Garrett shares with her students the practical methods she uses in her award-winning portraiture to help artists make the best paintings they’ve ever made. This is Tina’s most comprehensive oil painting workshop. Students will learn to see and simplify values, create form, and understand edges and chroma to control your composition and create dramatic portraiture using Tina’s practical and easy to use strategies.

Tina will demonstrate how to pose and paint from the live model as well as how to photograph the model and how to edit your photos with and without Photoshop. Tina will demonstrate three oil painting starting methods including open grisaille, accurate color wash and Tina’s favorite, selective start to help students discover the process that will help them achieve their best work. In this 5 Day workshop, artists will begin and finish a portrait to completion.

Tina will work one-on-one with every artist as they paint from both the live model and photos. 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. If your portraits look cartoonish or dead, you need this workshop. All levels welcome! Space is limited!
