PORTRAIT PAINTING and DRAWING . 3 days – (2 sitters) Saturday – Monday
Portrait Painting There will be two models in the studio sitting at the same time. This means one model between 4 people which has the advantage of you being able to study the subject as close as 5 feet away. Therefore this is an exceptional opportunity. In many portrait class you will find yourself between 15ft or 20ft from the model. Therefore 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 to work from.
