Join Albert Handell in this unique exciting 5 day portrait painting workshop. In the morning demonstrations, which will include both pastels and oils, you will see and learn what to emphasize and what to play down and what is secondary to a dynamic portrait.
in order to establish a strong portrait statement, and work sensibly towards finish. It will be an opportunity to see how a Master Artist works uniquely on the portrait.

THE DAILY SCHEDULE

The workshop hours are from 10AM to 5PM daily.

The PORTRAIT PAINTING DEMONSTRATIONS from life will clearly show ALBERT’s unique approach to portraiture with pastel and oils. In both mediums correct measuring is needed for the lightness and correct values for light and shade, for form (will be clearly demonstrated and explained).

There are daily morning PORTRAIT DEMONSTRATIONS, from 10 AM to 12:30 PM. From 1:30PM to 5 PM, artists will paint from the portrait model with help at the easel.

Palette of Colors and mediums

Mr. Handell paints in oil during the winter months in the studio. He uses Turpenoid as his paint medium, especially at the beginning, since these works are larger and call for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th painting sessions. He will then use Winsor Newton Liquin, very sparingly as his paint medium. He applies paint combing both brush and knife applications of color. His Oil Palette is listed below:

  • Titanium White W/N (Winsor Newton)
  • Cadmium Yellow Light W/N
  • Cadmium Orange W/N
  • Cadmium Red Light W/N
  • Terra Rosa W/N
  • Permanent Alizarin Crimson W/N
  • Yellow Ocher Light W/N
  • Burnt Sienna W/N
  • Viridian (Green) W/N
  • Cobalt Blue W/N
  • Ultra-Marine Blue W/N
  • Ivory Black W/N

If you are an experienced oil painter, bring any materials with which you would normally paint.
