My first weekend workshop was an intensive that touched on: still life, landscape (plein air) and portrait. All of the disciplines are connected. They all feature problem solving with light, form, depth and movement, and one discipline helps the other. The portrait segment was on the last day, and we had a spectacular model. In this photo, she is taking a break, but you can see the skull and the "planes" head that I always use to help students analyze the form and structure on the model. Future workshops, as well as weekly classes and "Open" sessions (no instruction) will focus on portrait/figure painting.
