The Challenge of Painting Portraits

As an artist you are always trying to improve and stretch your skills.  I wanted to work on my portrait painting and had the pleasure of taking a one day watercolor workshop with Ken Hamilton at the Gloucester County College.  Ken did a great demo and a warm-up exercise, then we were given the time to paint from a model.  You can’t expect to walk away with a fabulous painting at the end of a workshop, but you will gain a different outlook and skills to incorporate into your paintings.

I love the freshness and flow of Ken Hamilton’s watercolor paintings.  I am trying to loosen up a little in my own painting.  The workshop definitely helped me to loosen up a bit. Now all I have to do is paint a whole lot more portraits to see improvement.
