£160, All Welcome.
During this two day intensive workshop, you will master your own oil portrait painting created directly from a live model. With expert tuition and guidance along the way, you will develop your observational skills, painting techniques, understanding of colour and colour mixing and learn how to pursue the realist method.
The focus will be on the philosophy of seeing as an artist, to gain a deeper understanding of the main fundamentals of painting from life. There are underlying rules which can be pushed and broken, though it is important for them to be understood before an individual and expressive style can be developed.
