Portrait and Figurative Oil Painting with a Limited Palette with Dominique Medici

July 13 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Saturday and Sunday, July 13th and 14th, 2024

10:00 am to 4:00 pm

This is an oil painting workshop open to all levels but some experience is helpful.


I am excited to welcome Dominique Medici back to teach a portrait and figurative painting workshop at PFA Studio.

Dominique is widely respected for her beautiful portraits and her teaching ability. I know she is good because I have taken several workshops from her myself.

In this Portrait and Figure painting class, we work from a live model and learn how to demystify portrait and figure painting by breaking down the pose with a manageable and systematic 4-step process. We learn how to accurately mix any color by working with a limited palette of 7 colors. The primary palette will deepen our understanding of the relationship between hue value and chroma. We will learn how to mix flesh tones in 3 simple steps.

The First Day will be long figure poses with a nude model.

The Second Day will be portrait painting in the morning and clothed figure in the afternoon.


Why Attend this Workshop?

● Watch Dominique demo and show you a process of painting in clear and consecutive steps.

● We will use the basics of color theory to learn a simple color mixing process.

● Learn to mix any color accurately and consistently in just three steps.

● We will learn a 4 step process to break down the portrait into manageable steps.

● Use a chromatic primary palette of 7 colors designed to help you master color.

● Use these skills to create two paintings by the end of the weekend.


Who is this workshop for?


● All skill levels but some previous experience is a plus. Skill level is not that important, although basic drawing and color theory skills are a plus.

● It is for any student interested in receiving instruction and willing to put it into practice.
