Mary Whyte American Watercolor Artist

I learned to improve my 'artist’s eye!'" Angelo Fernandez

ONLINE Zoom Workshop

Hosted by Art in the Mountains

November 16 - 18, 2020
Self Portrait Workshop

Join Mary Whyte for a Zoom Workshop focusing on the Art of the Self Portrait.  For centuries, artists like Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Sargent and Wyeth periodically turned their focus inward for a reflective self-portrait.  During this time of the pandemic, historic changes, new insights and self-quarantine, many artists worldwide are doing the same.  Using a standalone mirror, Mary will demonstrate and guide you through the techniques of planning your unique composition, drawing, mixing flesh color and creating a background that tells your story.  She will also talk about maintaining your pose, avoiding mistakes and will give you personal critiques and tips for marketing your work.  
Mary’s work is in many corporate and museum collections, and has been featured in International Artist and American Art Collector magazines.  She was awarded the Portrait Society of America’s Gold Medal.
