The expressive and dynamic nature of portrait painting is through the interpretation of the subject and finding a pathway through the composition using shapes, proportion, value, colour temperature, and edges.
The goal of this workshop is to provide you with a strong base of information regarding the head along with the experience of being expressive and loose so your paintings become dynamic and alive.

I loved being a student of Michael Kings. I have taken both workshops and private lessons with him. I always learn something when I am out painting with Michael.
He knows his stuff. He loves art, is fun to work with and because he walks the walk of being an artist himself, he’s been there and he understands that there is a process that we all have to go through as we work on developing our own unique style. As a teacher he helps guide you gently through this process in a fun, knowledge based, positive way. He has a great teaching style.
I have many stories about the fun adventures we had out plein air painting together, but the one that I tell most often is when we were out in a farmer’s field and got sprayed with manure. Oh the joys of plein air painting.
Michael is an excellent teacher. Articulate, and generous with his knowledge.
Michael is enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable.
Classes were well planned and often supplemented with “hand outs” or information on great web sites to explore. His demonstration paintings were detailed yet simply presented and easy to understand.
He gave a lot of individual help to everyone and was able to offer suggestions to improve your painting, many of which can be applied to all my painting projects.
I learned more in an hour than I have in two years.
