A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer.
Painting the Head in One Sitting III ("Pam")
Our latest release is number three in our popular series, Painting the Head in One Sitting. This program varies from the other two in that the presentation is specifically arranged to illustrate the 29-step method featured in Mr. Sanden's book Portraits From Life in 29 Steps (North Light Books, 1999). Like the other two, this video takes the viewer step-by-step through the painting of a head-and-shoulders portrait, this time specifically enumerating the 29 steps featured in the book.
The 29 steps are divided into six sections: (1) The Layout, or preliminary drawing, (2) The Shadows, (3) The Halftones, (4) The Lights, (5) Restating, in which the artist refreshes and improves on previous judgements, and (6) Particularizing, in which the precise details of the facial features are painted.
This division of the job at hand into six manageable portions, which in turn are completed through several precise steps (it may sound complicated, but it's really quite simple) gives the painter a logical plan of accomplishment.

John Singer Sargent's Lady Agnew
John Singer Sargent's brilliant 1892 masterpiece. Lady Agnew, is the subject of this three-hour video demonstration. The album consists of two 90-minute video cassettes. In the first program, Mr. Sanden paints the head, and in the second program, the hands, arms, garments, the background, including the chair and accessories. Includes reprint: John Singer Sargent: His Technical Procedure. 2-cassette album. 3 hours of instruction.

John Singer Sargent's Head of an Arab
In 1891, John Singer Sargent traveled to the Holy Land and the Middle East to gain background material for his Boston Public Library murals. This dramatic head of a bearded man in Arab headress resulted from that trip. John Howard Sanden replicates Sargent's brilliant masterpiece, with a continuous commentary. Sargent clearly reveled in achieving the rich bronze tones of the swarthy complexion, the deep shadows which give volume to the head, the fierce intensity of the expression, and the broadly realized turban and garment details.
