Currents Gallery: Portrait with Limited Palette

Sarah Sedwick, Instructor

Learn to paint more loosely and simplify your color mixing during this three-day oil painting

workshop with Eugene artist Sarah Sedwick. Working from a live model, we’ll use the famous

Zorn palette - three colors plus white - to create beautiful, naturalistic skin tones. There are

many benefits to using a limited palette, and the technique can be applied to any kind of

painting you want to do - landscape, still life, even abstract! The alla prima painting style, in

which a work is begun and finished in one or two sittings, while the paint is still wet, is lots of

fun and perfect for exploring the portrait in oils. A combination of demonstrations, short

exercises, and longer-duration paintings will familiarize you with Sarah’s approach to the

portrait. Instruction will be in oils, but acrylics are also welcome. Beginning to advanced artists,

ages 15+.
