We've got a new class here at the trodden path by Kelly Berkey
called Blossoming Portraits
In this class you will learn how to Blossom into your own portrait style!
You will receive 3 hrs and 20 minutes of real-time demonstration (7 videos) plus a video on color mixing.
First we will create an acrylic underpainting, developing our portrait before laying yummy color down.
I encourage everyone to work from the photos of the painting I've done, then we will work from other reference photos to continue to inspire so you are able to develop your own unique style with this method.
“The moment I picked up a paint brush was the day I became fully alive. I’ve been told my work is “soulful, sweet, and sensual” which delights me as I feel I am finally able to open myself enough to paint my own nature into my pictures. I work through each painting with intention and meditation, often completing or working through struggles through my dreams. My biggest goal in creating is to leave just a little bit of my soul in each painting as witness to the divine universe.”
We are always looking for new instructors here at The Trodden Path. If you think you have something to teach, please contact me with a brief summary (can be one sentence) and a photo sample of what you are talking about.
To present your class you'd just need to show how you made a project from start to finish (via video), provide a supplies list and a photo of the finished project.
The atmosphere is fun and friendly and you don't have to be perfect...just open and willing.
