Event description
Learn how to make dynamic portrait paintings. Work from life in a small group with tuition. Suitable for all levels with materials provided.

About this Event

The workshop will teach you a direct oil painting technique, also known as ‘Alla Prima’. This approach involves painting in one sitting, working wet into wet. It is perfect for making stand alone sketches, studies for studio portraits or simply portrait sketching for your own enjoyment.

You will work from a single long pose for three hours with the support of a tutor. The class size is small, allowing you to work towards your own personal goals whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced artist looking to enhance your skills.

Topics covered

  • How to paint a well structured head with accurately placed features
  • Composition and lighting
  • Planes of the head and tonal value
  • Colour mixing and effective use your paint
  • Creating focus through varied brushwork and selective rendering of detail
  • Efficient use of time
  • Direct oil painting techniques

As you’d expect with any Northern Realist session, it’s a chance to spend time concentrating on your work beside like-minded friendly artists - with all the usual tea, biscuits and friendly conversation that goes with it.

When you arrive at the Avec building, you will need to text or call Kieran on 07432641637 for access.
