    The Next Steps

    with Grace Mehan DeVito   

    CSOPA* Portrait Oil Painting Weekend Workshop

    Learn the Next Steps in taking a portrait further along to a finish.

    Saturday June 29 and Sunday June 30 

    10 am - 12:30 pm Demo

    1 - 4 pm Paint with Instruction

     Cindy Wagner Studio, Weston, CT

    (address provided to attendees)

      Highlights include:

    > How to take a portrait further along to a finish
    > How to use the reference you’ve taken and manipulate it in PhotoShop with some basic tools
    > How to take your painted studies and use them to make better finished portraits

    SPACE IS LIMITED for DEMOS and even more so for PAINTING. Register today to avoid disappointment.

    We are excited to offer this advanced course! A live model will be there and every artist will have a different vantage point. Photos of the model set up will be sent approximately six weeks prior to the weekend. Position selections will be made on a first-come-first-serve basis. The first to pay for their registration will be #1 and have their pick of any position. The next registrant will be #2 and pick from remaining images and so on... Artist should arrive prepared with a blocked-in canvas work on Next Steps with approximately the same view of model. Alternatively, students may work from their own photo and block-in.

    Registration Types
