ABOUT THE PROGRAM: Gwenneth will discuss the multiple considerations to think of when approaching a portrait: setting the stage and choosing the lighting, simple measuring, the choice of which substrate to use, etc. She will also include her belief of using the mindset of a sculptor to feel the volume in space, and finding the best use of the three basic contrasts: dark and light, complementary colors and lost and found edges. Resemblance, expression, personality of the model – all of these come to life while just building the portrait, without really thinking of them.
