PORTRAIT PAINTING and DRAWING . 3 days – (2 sitters)
Portrait Painting and drawing with two sitters in the studio at the same time. This will mean one model between 4 people. The advantage is being able to study the subject as close as 5 feet away. Therefore this is an exceptional opportunity. In most portrait class you will find yourself between 15ft or 20ft from the model. The closer you are the better you can judge proportions, form and detail .
This course is ideal for beginners as well as the more experienced. It is a real chance to concentrate on the nuts and bolts of drawing and/or painting and how you construct and make a portrait. You also have a choice of two models and you can work from both.
