"Painting People from Photographs"
Ted Nuttall (Intermediate-Advanced)
Painting the figure or portrait is something many artists aspire to but often shy away from. Yet it is every bit as approachable as creating a still life or landscape. Ted’s workshop is designed to give you the tools, the confidence and the inspiration to enjoy painting people as well as show how working from photographs can be an effective and powerful approach to creating exciting figurative paintings in watercolor. Ted will discuss the benefits of photographic reference as well as how to edit, interpret and compose from a photo in order to give life and energy to the subject. His lectures, daily demonstrations, and one on one instruction will help you find new enthusiasm for your work.
“I don’t really think of my paintings as portraits; rather, I see them as representations of emotion and expression. Throughout my painting process I try to maintain an acute, intuitive awareness of what I need to see and capture to achieve this in my paintings.” - Ted Nuttall
