*History of Painting
I have experience with pencil, charcoal and pen and ink on paper; one and two point perspective; creating a convincing three dimensional illusion on a two dimensional plane or substrate.
I have knowledge of the harmonic proportions of the human body and the ability to capture a likeness of the subject with the working medium.
I have proficiency in line quality, shading, contour and creating a sense of form and light with the mastery of the medium.
I have knowledge of most painting mediums: watercolor, gouache, acrylic, oil, and their use, appropriate application, color mixing, clean-up, studio health/safety with volatile solvents.
I am able to create convincing likenesses in portraiture, still-life and landscape and critique work in the language of art and design.
