During the second session, we will start on your final project, talk about your chosen medium and how best to start putting your idea on paper or canvas. In this session I will be giving personalized advice depending on your own personal project, by then end you should have a good start on your portrait and some idea of how to finish it. 

Materials: Chosen medium and support for your final project (Acrylics, oil paint, pastels, watercolors, canvas, paper... and paintbrushes, palette etc. if needed)

Part 3: Painting a portrait, full painting session and feedback
Teil 3: Portät malen: malen Sitzung und Feedback

August 26. - 27.*

In the final session, you will mostly be painting and I will give you individual feedback and tips for your project. You might still not be very far along, or already almost finished depending on the medium you chose and if you worked on your portrait since the last session. Even if you are not completely done by the end of the workshop I want you to at least leave with enough pointers to finish on your own.
