WORKSHOPS   

Learning to paint PORTRAITS calls on a variety of technical skills, such as understanding of anatomy, drawing/ painting form, learning to interpret the flow of light in a conceptual way. We all want to achieve a “quick” portrait but in order to paint faster we need to slow down. In painting portraits it is vital to be accurate as one millimetre error takes us to “Uncanny Valley”! 
 
We all need training to improve our talents, the road to painting portraits is fascinating and an exciting challenge to achieve likeness, character and the satisfaction of a good drawing/painting. 
 
In my workshops we will cover: 
 
Simple exercise to zone in eye seeing negative shapes 
Tools to help train the eye 
Draw accurately - Good drawing leads to a good painting 
Colour Theory 
Colour Mixing making Clean colours 
Draw and Paint Form 
Understanding Values 
Understanding Composition 
Understanding of materials and the oil paint process 
 
Classes are small, 4 -5 max to ensure individual attention at all times. All levels welcome.  
ALL WORKSHOPS ARE CURRENTLY CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19.
