In this full day workshop learn Instructor Kathy Marlene Bailey’s revolutionary process to tackle the likeness of a face using simple methods. Using a single colour, you will create unique sliding lines of an “organic grid” to nail the exact placement of features unique to each person at the very start of your portrait. This process is translatable to any medium, however in this workshop you will be working with completely non-toxic alkyd oil paint on canvas All materials are supplied for a Materials Fee of $15.00 payable to the Instructor. Please bring your own reference material (a photo of the individual you wish to create a portrait of). If you wish to turn your rendering exercise into a full glaze oil painting, you are encouraged to register for our Wednesday evening five-week course, “Traditional Glaze Oil Painting”.
Instructor Kathy Marlene Bailey (B. A., Art Ed., Creative Arts) graduated from the University of Toronto in with a Bachelor of Arts in Art Education and holds a diploma from Sheridan College in Creative Arts. In her first year of university, Kathy had the pivotal experience of learning traditional glaze oil painting and is one of a handful of artists in Canada who works and instructs in this highly specialized field. When Kathy paints, she is in no hurry. She relentlessly glazes over and over again, readjusts and reinforces until all things that she can see fall into perfect balance. Kathy has participated for many years in commercial galleries, art events, juried shows, several major exhibitions, and has won many awards for her work. She is currently represented by Christina Parker Gallery in St. John’s, Newfoundland.
