*** Jon Houghton Oil Portrait Workshop ***



**changed to two days - October 18th and 20th, 20, 2019
(Friday and Sunday)
at The Art Students Guild of Brevard
909 E. New Haven Avenue, Melbourne, FL 32901

The Art Students Guild of Brevard is sponsoring a two day oil painting portrait workshop taught by master portrait artist Jon K. Houghton. Students may also work in pastel.

Jon Houghton's paintings hang in corporate headquarters, hospital boardrooms, military installations, courtrooms, homes of very lucky people and places of which we have lost track. He has a wealth of knowledge accumulated over many years of drawing, designing, painting, education, and study. Jon loves to share.

We will have the same model for 2 afternoons and different models for each of the 2 mornings. Jon will do short demos followed by critiques while the artists paint.

Demonstrations will include portrait studies; posing, lighting and staging for portraits and mixing the flesh tone palette.

Workshop content:
Posing, lighting and backgrounds for interest, clarity and expression
Efficient drawing approaches for the one-sitting portrait
Making a color plan
Flesh tone color theory and mixing palettes
The use of values
Painting a painting, not just a likeness
Capturing personality
Edges and vignettes

“I will demonstrate the palette layout before the session begins, from 9 am to 9:30 am. We will begin with a drawing, so a full color palette will not be necessary initially.”
Those of us who have attended Jon's workshops know that we all make big strides in our endeavor to be better portrait artists.
The morning session will be from 9:30-12:30. There will be a one hour lunch break. The afternoon session will be from 1:30-4:30.
Cost of the workshop is now $200. (Sorry, no partial fees.) Syllabus and materials supply list will be provided upon registration. Model fees are additional and will be divided among attendees.
