Portraits from Photos – Learn to create beautiful portrait paintings from your personal photographs as you study facial features, proportions and color. Class follows Richard’s book, Painting a Portrait, available in the Center for the Arts Turtle Gift Shop.
Instructor: Richard Kirk
Richard studied illustration at Palomar College in San Marcos, CA and established his illustration business in Boston, MA. His fundamental belief about painting, shapes his work and his teaching: “Creating a painting does not make one an artist. Artists create something extraordinary from their experience, knowledge and ability. Until a painter has discovered and is able to pull instantly from these three primary conditions, he or she is a student. Still, taking pride in being a student moves you closer to creating art.”
