Primitive Portraits - Rebooted

Join me into a reboot of my very popular Primitive Portraits class series! This class is all about getting back to the basics and allowing ourselves to enjoy the process of painting faces quickly and applauding that they are primitive, raw, and undone. I have overworked my portraits many times and wish I would have let them be more raw. There is an innocence and beauty in the simplicity of expression and emotion. The viewer is left with to interpret on their own. I like to say, "you don't always have to give the viewer every little detail." Sometimes things get lost when it's all given. Let's leave some room for mystery and beauty....and primitiveness.
