CSOPA Congratulates artists selected from a record number of entries from around the country.
Mary Minifie is a professional portrait painter and modern master of the Boston School. She is attended Wellesley College, Boston University School of Fine Arts, graduate school in painting and spent many years studying classical portraiture with Boston School painter, Paul Ingbretson.  She is represented by Vose Galleries, Boston; The Guild of Boston Artists, Boston; Portraits North, Lexington, MA; Portraits, Inc, New York;  Portrait Brokers of America, Birmingham.

The 3 day workshop will focus on painting a model from life in natural light. Emphasis will be on the beauty of the flesh color notes in the natural light and understanding the form of the head. The workshop will begin with setting up a live model with good light and color, finding a composition with interesting clothing and creating a small color study of the whole painting  in preparation for the finished work and also suitable for presenting to clients when a commission is underway.  The sessions will include a demo by Mary Minifie and painting time. One lunch time will be used to discuss business angles of the portrait business. There will be a slide lecture and final critique session which can include work not done in the workshop.
