5-Day Oil Portrait Workshop in Ha Noi, Vietnam

[Hanoi, Vietnam] This is a private workshop, Cuong will demonstrate his own approach to the old masters technique of oil painting using the verdaccio underpainting. Verdaccio is a greenish underpainting technique used byearly Italian fresco painters. The artist establishes all the values in the underpainting technique. Several transparent over paintings are then applied, achieving a realistic skin toned painting that glows.  Much like his pastel painting technique using the same method, Cuong has perfected an almost step by step method of achieving a great finished painting. 

Demonstrations and individual attention will be emphasized, enabling each student to produce a finished painting by workshop completion.

3-Day Workshop: Drawing the Human Face

(Santa Clara, CA) This 3-day portrait drawing workshop will begin with instruction on the proportions of the head from basis lines to more detailed rendering of features based on an understanding of anatomy. The first day of the workshop shop you will learn to use pencil or conte to draw facial features  and then how to put them together with realistic proportions. The second day Nguyen will  do a demonstration of the process of drawing the head from a live model. We will develop a likeness of the model by learning to interpret what we see, and by simplifying the features and focusing on basic shapes and forms. 

If you are at all compelled to become a portrait artist and really want to master the art of how to draw faces that are realistic and lifelike, this workshop is for you!
