Capture the essence of a human portrait in a fresh and lively way.

Working from live models, students will learn features and proportions of the head and craft their painting into a convincing likeness of the subject. Special emphasis will be placed on how to mix a successful skin tone and capturing the subject in the alla prima process. Students can expect to take home many finished head studies painted freshly from their own brush.

This workshop is for artists of all levels, but previous oil painting experience will be helpful. Acrylic painters are also welcome to enroll (bring a slow-dry medium to extend your work time).

“As an artist I cherish adventure, and I am continually enchanted by color and its power to translate atmosphere.  My work explores the coastal lifestyle, past and present, with the soul of a simpler, romanticized era. Industries of travel and entertainment may change, but nostalgia never grows old.”

 

Cat Pope (b. 1989) is an artist madly in love with color relationships, dramatic energy, and confident brushwork. Her childhood in Clearwater, Florida instilled in her a love for the natural landscape and the unique sense of light found along the Gulf Coast.

Cat’s work in oil depicts the coastal South using post-impressionist and contemporary realist techniques. Layers of color, bold shapes, and manipulation of surface texture illustrate a fascination with the nature of the medium itself and its rapturous capacity for memory.

 

Cat currently lives and works from her studio in Mobile, Alabama. When not in the midst of creating, Cat enjoys teaching workshops and encouraging others to chase after inspiration in all of their creative pursuits. Her works have been collected throughout the United States.
