Event Details

Fun & Intensive Weekend Painting Workshop:

  • May 6-7, 2017
    Time: 10am-4pm

You will learn how to capture a likeness, paint in a realistic style, incorporate the image into a background that works with the painting. If you choose, you can work on a different portrait in the Sunday session, or if your desire is for more detail, you can complete the first one. Specific techniques will include drawing correct proportions, painting hair and skin, working with light and shadow, incorporating backgrounds, and more.

• Students will work from photographs to paint a portrait of their loved one. Bring several to choose from. 

We will be working in oil or water-soluble oil paints.

Art Instructor Bio - Adeline Halvorson

Adeline Halvorson knew at an early age that she wanted to be an artist. In her rural upbringing, animals, especially horses, played a very important role. Her entire working life has been dedicated to her art career. Through experimentation, endless reading and hours of practice, she continually hones her techniques in acrylic or oil.

She spends most of her time researching and creating the paintings she markets to a growing group of collectors. She enjoys the variety of diverse subjects - floral, still life, dogs, or a childhood scene, and most often, her favorite equine subject matter. Years of riding and grooming horses has given Halvorson a knowledge of anatomy and muscle movement that her painting skills bring to life on the canvas. The shapes and movement of muscle, variety and texture of harness and trappings, as well as the horse and its interaction with its human counterparts provide endless artistic inspiration for one who grew up with a love for one of the world’s most beautiful animals.
