Portrait Painting

Portrait Painting

PORTRAIT PAINTING and DRAWING . 3 days –  (2 sitters)

Portrait Painting and drawing with two sitters in the studio 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.  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.

Materials. We have large sheets of paper, drawing materials and various paints and canvases in stock. You can use oil and gouache paints for £6 a day. Otherwise bring materials of your choice. The studio is fully equipped with  8 studio easels, work stations and drawing boards
