This workshop will take participants through a three stage process to produce an oil portrait from a live model. Day one will be focused on constructing a characterful drawing which will be the foundation for a tonal painting in burnt umber. On day two the focus will be on colour and further modelling of form. Advice will be given on drawing, mixing tone and mixing colours from direct observation of the model. Some previous experience of drawing and painting is necessary.

All basic materials provided for this course (heavier weight papers available at cost price). Please bring your own painting brushes if you have them. Please bring an apron or wear clothes suitable for an art studio. You may wish to bring a plastic bag in which to take wet work home.
