Saturday 22 June 2024
10.30am – 4.30pm

Join us for a workshop designed to provide you with an introduction to portrait painting, completed from a reference image with tuition and guidance along the way.

Over the course of the day you will learn to complete a portrait painting through the development of your observational drawing skills, your painting technique, and your understanding of colour and colour mixing.

This workshop will place a focus on the understanding of light and shadow, proportion, and form, bringing out our own individual expression along the way. While the tutor guides you through the philosophy of seeing as an artist and understanding the main fundamentals of portraiture through paint. 

Please note this workshop requires you to bring your own materials. It is essential you provide your own canvas. The materials list can be downloaded to the left of the webpage.
