Create a portrait with a watercolor underpainting and Prismacolor colored pencils on Stonehenge paper using a photograph you have taken. The photo needs to be very clear with good lighting. It can be transferred to paper by projecting or with a grid process.
Composition, contrast, color, value, and simulation of texture will be discussed.

BFA from the University Of Hartford. MFA from Anna Maria College. I have over 30 years of experience teaching studio art and art history at all grade levels. In my own work, my preferred media is oil paint, oil pastel, and a combination of watercolor with colored pencil. I strive to capture images that touch the viewer in a personal way. In my seascapes and landscapes I attempt to go beyond pure representation and paint not only the place, but communicate the feeling of being in that space. I try to capture the elusive space between representation and the emotions felt from the experience or memory of a place.
