Alain Picard

Alain writes, "I'm thrilled to have been invited to give a one-day workshop and a portrait demonstration at the upcoming 2015 IAPS Convention in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This is a great opportunity for those of you who are outside of the east coast to study with me in a very exciting and creative environment. Registrations are now live, so sign up today!"

Be Inspired,
Alain Picard 
Three Hour Portrait Demonstration from Life
Saturday, June 6, 2015
Location: Albuquerque, NM

Working from the live model, Alain will demonstrate a painterly approach to the portrait. Included will be an explanation of techniques for creating an accurate likeness, establishing clear values, evaluating color relationships and selecting skin tones, developing a painterly style, and harnessing the power of strong design. Alain will also discuss the importance of lighting and posing the model.

One-Day Workshop
Sunday, June 7, 2015
Location: Albuquerque, NM

After an introduction to color theory and how it relates to skin tones, Alain will demonstrate from a model how to develop a 9 color skin tone chart to serve as a color key. Then everyone will paint a portrait based on the discoveries made with the skin tone charts. This logical approach to color selection will equip the pastelist with knowledge and confidence to see and select skin tones for their own portrait and figurative work.
