A full day tutored workshop in painting the portrait.
Saturday November 25th. 11AM to 5PM
Painting portraits with a live model is challenging but fun -and the right time to start practicing is right now.
I will guide you through the process in an easily understandable way; and questions are welcome. As in all my classes, I’ll start with a demonstration and all participants will get personal attention throughout the day. It’s tiring work but we’ll have fun through the day.
What level painter should I be?
You should have some drawing and colour-mixing experience. If you’ve never painted before, you might find this overwhelming. If you’ve painted still lifes or landscapes before, you’ll be challenged but that’s the way to learn!
We’ll cover the following:
- The structure of the head.
- Mixing skin-tones and tonal values.
- Colour temperature.
Where is it?
This event will take place in the Parochial Hall of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church in Harold’s Cross. See the map below. Be aware that there is a parking fee.
