Portrait Painting Workshop with Greg Rodriguez

November 15 and 16, 2014
9:00 - 4:00

Winnebago Street Studios





Many aspiring painters have been painting for a few years and still question their technique due to poor habits and painting instruction and as a result their progress is impeded.  Mr. Rodriquez, with 30 years of experience, has given careful attention to a complete understanding of this oil painting media. Beyond the basic principles of form, light, and color is the practical knowledge of how paint works. Specifically brands of oil paint, brush and palette knife technique, canvas choices, medium, and types of brushes will be addressed.  This workshop will focus on the head study including proper design, structure, and paint application to arrive at a likeness.  The following workshops will extend the portrait to include the torso and the placement of hands.  This workshop is the prerequisite to a subsequent workshop which will be designed to the complete portrait within the interior (a formal portrait).

American Girl murals


This summer I worked on some backdrops for the toy giant American Girl with the lovely Alicia Rheal from Rheal Imagination.  I don't want to spoil the surprise, so once holiday catalog is out I'll post some pics of the work.

Ice Cave Revisited

This summer we went back to Verona to work on another mural with the same theme.

Kathy   graphite   11x 13


Throughout history, figure drawing and painting has been the centerpiece for the training of young painters and draftsmen.  In this workshop, students of all levels will embark on a comprehensive examination of how to paint or draw the live model.  Depending on the student’s medium of choice, either graphite or oil paints, he or she will gain a better understanding of crucial elements that will maximize the impact of their figure paintings and drawings. The teacher will conduct a step-by-step approach based on the student’s experience and goals, which will allow for better development of both personal vision and proficient technique. Composition, drawing fundamentals, value relationships, color mixing, as well as anatomy will all be covered.  Teacher demonstrations and individual feedback will ensure the student’s understanding of the subject.  The skills learned in this workshop will spark the student’s ability to draw or paint any other subject, whether it be a landscape or a still life, with more ease and fluency.
