Seth Haverkamp Workshop

Only 2 seats available, reserve today.

Strength Through Simplicity

Two Alla Prima Portrait Approaches

Seth Haverkamp will demonstrate how to explore the essentials of a person and paint only what is needed to make a successful portrait. In this two day workshop, you will paint two complete portraits in two different styles and discover that a likeness and a strong three-dimensional head is best achieved through large shapes.

Day 1

First Approach: Limited palette, drawing large shapes. Emphasis in this approach will be placed on structure which comprises an accurate description of features, value placement and edges.

Day 2

Second Approach: Full palette, painting accurate colors and the light directly, with no drawing or underpainting. Emphasis in this approach will be placed on shapes. By not focusing on drawing but instead focusing on only shapes, our drawing has the potential to be more accurate and our likeness correct.
