    The “Dancing with Stardust” workshop will reinforce various fundamentals of art such as space and texture but will especially emphasize color using the Spectrum Color Theory with its Optical Complements.

    Learning how to find and play with this color approach can bring greater self-expression in our paintings.
    Terrilynn will teach this theory, demonstrate options, and provide special exercises in a variety of challenges to help  participants gain confidence in using it.

    Even the most accomplished artist can find painting a portrait from life overwhelming. This workshop will incorporate a simplified but solid approach to portraiture by combining what we see with what we know.

    While we will cover proportion and common facial elements, our primary focus will be on rendering accurate abstract shapes and understanding the effects of light on the planes of the face in order to paint a portrait that is both convincing and compelling.
