“Better than expected – learned to paint what you see not what you think you see.” – Marianne P. “This class exceeded my expectations! I learned so much and Paul is such a wonderful man.” – Toni D.
Paul Leveille was here just a week ago to each his 5-day workshop on creating expressive portraits. He showed his step-by-step process for developing a portrait starting with the large light and dark shapes, and then progressing to the detail. The group enjoyed working with a different model each day.
Paul offered plenty of help at each person’s easel.
This is a sketch of the first day’s model done by Paul as he was talking about values.
Here is Paul’s demo in done in pastels. Paul’s demo done in watercolors.
This is Paul’s demo done in oil. This is Christine, one our housekeepers, who was kind enough to pitch in as a model when the one we had scheduled called in sick. She did a great job as a model.
