In the workshop I will be demonstrating techniques that I have used when studying the portrait artists from the Rococo period. I depict a portrait of one of the daughters of Oceanus, Keto, from greek mythology. She is a Naiad Nymph who's name means "sea monster" in ancient Greek. For this portrait I wanted to stay true to the classical portraits of the 18th century while adding a fantastic element, the baby sea dragon, as a twist.
You will learn how I create a fantasy portrait using these methods in one of my favorite mediums. While I will be working in traditional oils for this painting, keep in mind that many of the principles I will be showing here can also be applied to other mediums as well. Issues can be ordered here!
