Student artwork presently exhibited at the Live Oak Senior Center



Dear Painters,


Drawing or painting a portrait from life or from a photograph is always a mixture of challenge,

excitement and fascination. Our hope is that we will succeed to go beyond just likeness and express

the emotion behind it. It is because of these concepts and the eagerness to keep going of people

who have been engaged in the previous two sessions that we will be continuing

PAINTING PORTRAITS IN WATERCOLOR with another six week session.

Drawing is very important in portrait art and by using the transfer method a good likeness

can be achieved. However various mixed media drawing exercises will be explored to accomplish

expressive and loose art and also to just have some fun and acquire new ideas and inspirations.


We will be using ink pens, color pencils and graphite pencils in combination with watercolor paint

but the focus will always be on watercolor. Special attention will be paid to choosing interesting

backgrounds for our portraits and many other facets. There will be inspirational Hand Outs

but students are encouraged to bring in photographs of loved ones.


We will discuss which type of photographs are the most adapt to use.

New students (several students will have taken the previous 2 sessions) are welcome

and the course is designed to accommodate everybody.
