Sarah Sedwick "Zorn Portrait Workshop"

After using only Cad Red, Yellow Ochre, Black, and White to make our color wheels, we watched Sarah Sarah Sedwick start her portrait painting process on the first day of the workshop.
With a new model on Day 2, Sarah showed her block in process using the Zorn palette of 3 colors plus white. 

During the morning, Sarah demonstrated her process using the Zorn palette. We then followed suit to get our block ins done before lunch. 

After a full day of instruction, color mixing, and painting we prepared for the end of day critique

Sarah's critique's are always helpful, informative, constructive and precise.  A great workshop for artists of all levels to learn, practice, and grow in their artistic development.

Since Oliver has always been deeply inspired by a 20th Century master artist, Nicolai Fechin, Oliver employs his influence in creating sensitive, emotional and dramatic portraits in vine charcoal. To capture the insight and warmth of each subject, then transfer it from life to drawing paper is Oliver’s motivation.  To leave behind an essence of personality on drawing paper, along with intense personal feelings, is Oliver’s attempt to reveal his approach towards art and life. 

    Bio: Oliver Sin is an alumnus from Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA, with a BFA in Illustration. Right after he graduated in 1996, he started his art career as a computer game concept artist in LucasArts. Since 2001 until now, Oliver has returned to his own school to be an art professor for the School of Fine Arts and 2D Animation. Oliver has been so drawn to art even as a little boy, he once recalled that he has started drawing at the age of 3. Somehow, portraiture just seem to be his favorite form of expression which he constantly practice, not only as an art professor, but as a favorite hobby as well. 

    Since 2011, Oliver has been lucky enough to come across a few distinguished contemporary artists as his mentors, ZhaoMing Wu, Henry Yan and Chung-Wei Chien. Their tireless guidance has urged him to put greater efforts in capturing fleeting human expressions and paying more attention to precise composition in figurative portraits.  Oliver’s first art book, “Drawing the Head for Artists” is scheduled for publication by Rockport publisher on August 6th in summer 2019.
