The contemporary, synthetic, high-chroma colors available to artists today would have completely overwhelmed painters from previous eras. How do we utilize these synthetic pigments to create a dynamic portrait painting that retains an accuracy of the subject? This class provides palette and painting demos to support artists from beginner to advanced levels in creating one self-portrait utilizing the advantages of the contemporary high-chroma color available today.
