Project: A Porter Self-Portrait
Lecture no. 32 from the course: The Complete Painter: Lessons from the Masters
Taught by Professor David Brody | 17 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses
In this lecture, you’ll paint a study based on a Fairfield Porter self-portrait. Porter focused on observational figure painting with works that relied on strong abstract shape relationships. In this painting, you’ll work with opacity and density as you create all the large and small, positive and negative shapes that come together as a type of grid of interlocking puzzle pieces.
