The workshop will focus on skin painting (pores, spots, hairs, marks) and how to manage colors to achieve a hyper-realistic treatment, from the first layer of paint to the addition of detailing so that the skin texture is designed with fluidity and depth.

The first part will be the conception of tones, values and color variations to achieve an illusion of three-dimensionality but the greater focus will be on the careful addition of small details that will gradually raise the painting to a level of reality that surpasses the photographic reference .

The goal is for the participants to learn to differentiate the application of different types of texture that obey the "mesh" of the skin and the connections between the different parts of the chosen figure.

It will be preferable that participants already have a little prior knowledge of oil paint.
