"Conceptual Portraiture" by Anita Kunz
Kunz will explain her own creative process from cultivating ideas to using reference materials properly and legally. Then, she will move into conceptual portraiture showing tons of examples - including one conceptual portrait painting from start to finish in a set of 10 slides. In her own words:
For this class I’ll be showing examples of portraits I’ve done, with explanations of how I came up with the ideas, and also how I utilized reference material to aid with the likenesses. It’s extremely important to use photography properly, both to understand the form and features of the face, and also to use the information in a photograph without infringing on the photographers copyright (lawsuits are rampant these days). Obviously it’s much better to use one’s own photograph from which to create an artwork, but often when an artist is commissioned to paint a famous person, only copyrighted photographs are available. The trick is to use the photograph properly.
There will also be a Q and A period. - Anita Kunz
