Workshop: Scott Waddell in Texas

Scott Waddell, artist and instructor at the Grand Central Academy in New York City, will be conducting a Portrait Painting Workshop in Austin, Texas later this year.  Hosted by the Austin Classical Art Academy, this one-week intensive class will run from September 23rd through the 27th at the Gemini School of Visual Arts.  The cost is $550.  For more information, or to register, please visit

Spend 5 days working with Scott Waddell as he teaches his comprehensive approach to painting the portrait. In this intensive workshop, Scott will thoroughly cover each step of his process from block-in drawing to finished painting. Proportion, structure, and perspective will be the focus of the block-in drawing phase. Color mixing and paint application will be addressed as Scott teaches and demonstrates his approach to painting form, and its expression through hue, value, and chroma.

And if you haven't seen it yet, don't forget to visit Scott Waddell's Sketchbook Blog to see his free instructional video, Webisode 7: The Conceptual Edge.  It is an excellent tutorial with great visual descriptions of the principles of light and shadow.
