Description

Workshop Detail

Come along to this exciting workshop with our returning favourite artist, Anthony Barrow. He will be teaching you how to paint portraits in watersoluble oil, using a limited colour palette.

The workshop will start with a brief demonstration on drawing the portrait, and the position of features. Anthony will then talk you through applying a charcoal underpainting. When happy with the composition, a thin application of oil paint will be applied, working with warm and cool colours. The final touches will then be added, using a combination of darks and highlights.

About the Artist

Anthony is a member of NAPA the National Acrylic Painters Association and has been painting for over 30 years he holds a BA (Hons) Fine Art and Certificate in Education and is a professional artist and lecturer. Anthony is predominantly a figurative painter with a prolific output that often overflows into the disciplines of landscape, still life and abstract painting. His work stretches the boundary between representational imagery and memory, exploring techniques that become far more important than the painting process itself. Chiefly commission based his vast experience and natural talent for capturing the human form along with his expressive portraits that explore the underlying character of the sitter as seen his work being honoured with numerous awards.
