All mediums and levels of experience. Mudhead is a term that originated in the Hawthorne and Hensche color schools. These paintings capture the color, value and form of people without rendering facial features; and are usually painted with the figure backlighted. The head and face tend to be a warm muddy color, thus mudhead! These paintings begin very loosely and are built from abstract chunks of color, which are then refined but not detailed. The ability to paint a mudhead comes in handy when painting people on beaches, and in outdoor restaurant and street scenes. Mudheads are a lot of fun to paint, and the instructor will show you a simple step-by-step technique that gives great results. www.dianeduboismullaly.com Bring a bag lunch.
