Work with Rene painting portraits in water media
Portraiture, an expressive art form in it’s own right, is the vehicle we’ll use to find new and expressive ways of approaching our work.

This is a studio class for ongoing study and exploration. You bring projects to start or finish. I’ll work with you to plan and create your painting, plus I will offer individual mini-demos to help you resolve specific issues.

This class will have an emphasis on designing the portrait and use of color. I also will introduce textural methods and cover different types of paint application. We will explore different concepts and techniques. There will be at least one demo each week, so that you will be able to see how my portraits develop — I am usually working on several at any given time but may paint one step-by-step at the classes.
