This workshop sold out last year, so we are bringing it back in 2019. Now's your chance to register if you were not able to last time.

Being taught in the Russian Academic technique, Timur Akhriev encountered a lot of different ways to paint a portrait. One way to was to do a fast and quick portrait painting. This idea stuck with Timur and has helped him to be a more efficient painter and make his painting look more alive. This workshop will concentrate on painting in three days. It is a good practice to have a short amount of time for a head study.

Limited time will give students a chance to challenge themselves and to paint more directly and fearlessly like Repin, Zorn, Sorrolla, and Sargent, etc.

Working from a live model, the class will touch correct proportions, tone, value, composition, application of brushstrokes and thick vs thin paint ratio. A lot of portrait classes have a very regular setting, such as light from the top, this time we will set a light from the bottom. This will make a portrait even more interesting and dramatic for painting and it will let you experience something new.
