We are proud to bring visiting artist Tina Garrett to Studio Pintura!

Tina started oil painting in 2012 and shares with her students the practical methods she uses in her award-winning portraiture to help artists make the best paintings they’ve ever made. Tina is a two-time ARC Salon Purchase Prize Winner, three-time Oil Painters of America Online Showcase awardee, an International Artist Magazine People & Figures Grand Prize winner and a proud Cecelia Beaux Forum Mentor for the Portrait Society of America.

Students will study flesh tones in multiple lighting scenarios including varied ethnicities, colored lighting, and painted faces. 

Every morning Tina will demonstrate at least three starting methods: 

Accurate Color Wash, Open Grisaille and Value Block-In.

In the afternoon students will paint from the live model or from photos provided by Tina.

 She will share her practical strategies to create an accurate color palette to understand values, temperature and how they create form. 

Tina also will share two simple techniques for accurate drawing.

Students will focus intently on the creation of an accurate palette. 

Tina will demonstrate the processes she employs in all her works, focusing on composition, values, chroma, edges, mark making, and will demonstrate how to control your palette for accurate values and color.

Lastly, Tina will  share key strategies for portrait artists including detailed instruction on client contracts and relations, PR/marketing, social media and how to price your work.

“Of all the workshops I have attended, I feel that this one made the largest and quickest influence in my work. At the end of day two, I felt that the small 4 inch section of a face I had done was the best work I've ever done! Thank you Tina, for your expertise, your generosity in sharing that with us and for your amazing heart” — D.H., TEXAS

The most informative workshop I've been to. You're the most 'giving you all I've got' artist/teacher I've known — and your honesty is a virtue that is so important to me! I have been in a painting slump for a few months and much of what you said really encouraged me, now I'm very inspired and motivated to go home and DO THE WORK!” — DEBI MURRAY, INDIANA
