Portrait Painting Workshop

Portrait Painting Workshop

£135.00Price

Saturday 20th April

Bellingdon & Asheridge Village Hall

10am - 4pm

 

This one day workshop focuses on painting portraits with acrylics.

Join me in this 6 hour workshop where we take a look at portraiture and learn techniques on how to approach and complete a portrait painting using acrylic paint.

 

Learn how to prepare, setup and start a portrait painting. Learn how to handle paint, understand colour and how they react with one another, and also learn how to create texture using confident brush strokes. We'll discuss narrative and composition whilst looking at artist work (such as Frida Khalo and others) to understand how it can be applied and the impact it can have.

 

I’ll walk you through my process from start to finish, from preparing the reference to preparing my surface, how I mix colours to how I apply the paint. By the end you will have completed a portrait painting whilst having many sketches to take home. 

 

Expect a hands on, practical workshop where I will be guiding you every step of the way to creating confident paintings.

 

This workshop is suitable for both beginner and those looking to learn new techniques, with loads of demonstrations and one to one teaching to show you how to complete a portrait painting.

ABOUT ME

 

Why paint portraits with me?

 

One thing that has remained certain throughout my art "career" is the love of portraiture. I have been painting portraits for many years, and during this time have come to learn and develop my own techniques in creating portraits. You can learn more about my painting here! 

 

 


TRANSPARENCY

Tickets are £135 per person. 

There are no refunds, if you are no longer able to attend then you are welcome to pass your space on to someone else. Please contact me with the updated information.

I am a self taught artist, techniques shown are from personal experience that I have developed over many years. Whilst I will be sharing my tips and techniques, they are by no means the only way to create. This is just an indepth insight to my own approach in an effort to help improve yours.

Look forward to meeting you!
