10 am-5 pm
Instructor: Nick Runge
In this two-day on-line workshop, Nick Runge will teach students how to paint a portrait in watercolor. Nick will begin each day with a demonstration of his approach and method while explaining the choices he makes, the intuition that he works with, and chances taken while painting a portrait. As students work on their own paintings, Nick will offer guidance, discussion, and instruction for each individual student as they paint. There will also be time set aside each day for group critique and sharing work. The instructor and students will be working from a photo reference. Students are encouraged to have up to three of their own images from which to work or they can work from images provided.
The workshop will be held via ZOOM meetings.

About the instructor:
Born in 1985, artist Nick Runge grew up in Colorado. After working as an illustrator for years, he now focuses exclusively on fine art and personal work using oils and watercolor.
As a portrait/figurative painter, Nick works from life as well as photography, describing his art as something close to “abstracted realism”, with an objective of expressing as much of the realistic human element of life as possible through a limited and often simplified approach to his rendering or brushwork, giving an illusion of realism while, at the same time, breaking shapes and form down enough to balance with abstraction.
We are unable to give refunds or exchanges for this workshop unless the workshop is canceled by Townsend Atelier.
