Come and join me for an informal and relaxed group of 6 evenings, learning the basics portrait painting. Suitable for a complete beginner, these sessions teach you a simple and easy way to create portraits from a reference photograph. These 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 photography and taught the basics of creating that photo. No still life or measuring will be used.
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 throughout the event, however if you wish to bring your own, you will need the following -
- A4or A3 canvas/canvas boards ( 2/3 would be ideal )
- 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 ( Lots available to use included )
- Also an HB pencil, Graphite stick
At the end of the course you will of produced a selection of portraits, either using the course references provided or from your own personal photographs, each using a different technique or style
