Anna's workshops focus on painting beautiful portraits with a strong understanding of form, edges, values, and clean color! If you have been struggling with seeing more than just "peach" in skin tones, come to this workshop and Anna will help you see just how much dazzling color can be found.
We always work from live models, with an instructor demonstration each morning, followed by one-on-one instruction in the afternoon.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Anna Rose Bain is a fine art oil painter and commissioned portrait artist based in Westminster, CO. Her paintings often depict people in peaceful settings or places that evoke happiness. She especially loves painting women and children, and seeks to convey all of her subjects with honesty and sensitivity.
Anna's style is a combination of both classical and direct painting methods, which often leads to the subject becoming somewhat idealized, while preserving its true essence. She draws her inspiration from the joys and struggles in her life. Her paintings are an expression of gratitude and an exploration of the questions one faces at different stages of their life. For example, her “Self Portrait at 23 Weeks Pregnant” is a coming to terms with change and a joyous celebration of new life.
In addition to being a wife and mother, Anna paints full time, teaches portrait workshops and demos, and is actively involved in local and national arts communities, including the Oil Painters of America and the Portrait Society of America. She has won numerous awards for her work and continues to draw the attention of national and international collectors. Her official website is www.artworkbyannarose.com.
