alla prima portrait

Attendees may paint or draw, all levels welcome.

Elizabeth will teach how she efficiently creates her lively single-session painted portraits, beginning with an emphasis on structural drawing and continuing with painting in color.

Elizabeth has developed techniques from her studies both at Juliette Aristide’s Atelier and at the Grand Central Academy. Using strong drawing skills, skilled brushwork, and luminous color she has combined approaches from multiple influences to create her own unique approach to painting a portrait sketch quickly and accurately.

Work alongside her as she demos her own process, and also offers individually tailored assistance for your own development.
