Simplifying Your Process: Portraits in Charcoal and Limited Palette
In this two day workshop we will be drawing with charcoal on toned paper the first day and painting in a limited palette on the second day.
Each day will begin with a demonstration and explanation of the materials and process. After that the class will work from the same model while the instructor helps each student individually.
For the limited palette we will be using what is commonly referred to as the Zorn palette.
ABOUT SEAN CHEETHAM
Sean Cheetham was born in 1977 in San Francisco, studied at the College of San Mateo, in California, and earned a B.F.A. degree with honors from Art Center College of Design, in Pasadena, California. His paintings have been included in numerous significant exhibitions internationally including the National Portrait Gallery in London. He has a devoted following of collectors and art students that are inspired by his work and distinctive technique. Primarily a figurative painter, Sean is known for his technical prowess in achieving accuracy and harmony in his alla prima paintings which he credits to a deep understanding of drawing and his own system of mixing colors which he uses adeptly to govern shadows, midtones and highlights. In addition to having an exceptional ability to understand, draw, and paint the human form, Cheetham’s selection of subjects typically in familiar urban scenes contributes a truthful and often raw spirit that makes his work distinctive and a contemporary testimony of our time.
