Human Portrait Painting Workshop, with Jacob Gourley, Sun 16 June 2024, 10-4pm, £126
Working with a life human portrait model is demanding but very rewarding and satisfying. The portrait workshop offers structure and helps mastering the principals of this subject with the emphasis to let each student apply their own working and style.
You will learn how to get the proportions, orientation and structure of the head right. We will introduce you to the basic principles and the preliminary stages of rendering a portrait. We will explain proportional guidelines focusing on the structure of the head, observing the effects of light and shade and the visual challenges it creates. You will work in acrylic and oil paint.
The course is run in small groups of max 10 and there is plenty of guidance from the teaching artist Jacob Gourley. All levels welcome.
You will learn:
• how to use acrylic and oil paint for portraits
• how to get the proportions, orientation and structure of the head
• how to mix the right colour
