Painting Workshop: Portraits in the Landscape

Join me for two afternoons in on the Gianicolo in Rome (photo above) for oil painting alla prima.  The subject?  The newly restored busts and the view of Rome!  In particular, I’ll discuss composition, paint opacity and the development of meaning through formal considerations.

Saturday, July 2nd and Sunday, July 3rd, 16:00 – 20:00.
