Beginning with the charcoal sketch and moving straight through paint and block-in and the development of shapes, values and color temperature, Scott shows how it's done. As he lays in paint, his running commentary reveals how an experienced portraitist judges proportions, shadows, reflections, edges and mush more.
This first video In the Studio with…Scott Burdick is the longest and offers a great substitute to a workshop with Scott, as it is as informative as the program he would offer in such a class. With limited time to satisfy his gallery and invitational exhibition commitments, Scott is not available to teach as many workshops as students would like. This is a superlative alternative to studying with Scott.
