Portrait Painting in Oils

About this event

The Course

In this course we will begin by considering composition, pose, proportion and shape and how those elements within a portrait painting combine to provide a starting point from which to develop a painting, an interpretation of the sitter that incorporates likeness, personality and mood. In support of this we will look at portrait works by other artists and how their representations of a subject relate to something that is more than ‘documentation’.

We will learn the skills and techniques of oil painting and mediums, their versatility and forgiveness (and sometimes limitations). You will be taught how to prepare grounds, how to evaluate colour, balance and temperature, and tone and value, and how they work together. We will work from a model and throughout the week, as you progress and develop you will put into practice the skills you have learned. As well as the studies that you make, you will create resolved paintings.

All levels of experience are welcome.All necessary materials will be provided and light lunches and refreshments will be available. Please notify us at time of booking if you have any dietary requirements.
