Come and join me for an informal and relaxed day of basic portrait painting. Suitable for a complete beginner, this session can teach you a simple and easy way to create a portrait from a reference photograph. Our classes are perfect if you want to come and try your hand at a new leisure hobby or want to simply expand your own artistic journey.
*NOTE - you will be provided with a reference photograph and taught the basics of creating that photo. No still life or measuring will be used OR if you're an existing member of my evening classes and looking to advance your skills you can step up in size
It will include step by step demonstrations of painting techniques and plenty of one to one tuition to support you as you work.
A selection of very basic materials are available on the evening, however if you wish to bring your own, you will need the following -
- A4 canvas/canvas board (A3 for advanced class members )
- Acrylic paints. A minimum palette would be ultramarine, cobolt, burnt umber, burnt sienna, alizarin crimson, lemon yellow and viridian WHITE AND BLACK
- A selection of brushes such as a ¾” flat or filbert, a No 8 round and a No 4 round (with a fine point) and a No 0 for very fine detailing
- Also an HB pencil, Graphite stick
Light refreshments are included
We will be painting a famous musician and as always plenty of background music and complimentary refreshments.
Other leisure classes are available.
All of the above can be sourced from Phil at Northwich Art shop, or contact me if you need some help
I look forward to seeing you all
