- Lesson Details
In this lesson, instructor Amy Florence will demonstrate the third session of a half-body portrait painting with hands using the sight-size method. You will watch her refine areas like the background, chair, blouse, and hands before she revisits the head to add final touches. Amy will teach you how to use each element in the painting as a design tool to help drive the viewer’s eyes to the focal point; the portrait.
This lesson belongs to the course Size-Sight Portrait Painting. In this 12-week course, you will study how to use the sight-size method in portrait painting. Amy Florence will introduce you to several materials needed for sight-size drawing and painting. She will teach you the basics of oil painting while demonstrating on a cast. Then, you will practice the sight-size technique on a portrait drawing and learn the preparatory steps for a portrait painting; they include creating value and color studies. Lastly, Amy will show you how to execute a life-size portrait painting and a large-scale portrait painting with hands. After this course, you will become more proficient with your handling of oil paints and be able to capture any portrait with confidence.
