Self-portraiture is a wonderful way to capture a moment in time. You will begin your painting as a tonal underpainting in acrylic to establish values. This creates a monochromatic version of the finished piece. Daphne will teach you her personal technique which begins with gesso on your panel and then sketching out your subject. This underpainting technique involves putting down many thin layers of paint, sanding the layers down with sand paper, and building them up again. Next you will work with glazing in oil over the underpainting. This process involves layering transparencies of oil paint over the full rendered underpainting. The glazing process is relatively quick and easy and FUN. There will be individual attention and direction throughout the workshop.

Please bring a mirror and/or photograph.
