Waiting list being taken, email to join the list


Come learn techniques for painting the portrait. In this class there will be three, two week long poses. Noah will show you classical techniques for painting a realistic portrait. Noah will teach the use of plumb lines, comparative measurement, and tilt angle to find correct proportions. Noah will show how he mixes colours and talk about how he thinks about colour when painting. Working from live clothed models, you will learn how to start your painting, see and record shapes clearly and simply, and model form by carefully observing the properties of light. 

You will work on three paintings over the six week class.
Each painting will be two weeks long.

Week one: Students will work with a limited palette of colours, working on proportion and value.
Week two: Students will work with a full colour palette refining and finishing their painting from the previous week.

Student comments

"I have taken both portrait painting and drawing from Noah Layne and found him to be not only a brilliant artist but an exceptional teacher. He is both kind and patient but most importantly I have noticed an improvement in my skill level. I intend to take more classes from him."
