Painting and Drawing Portraits

November 24, 2023 - November 28, 2023

For those who already have a little experience at drawing and painting and wish to start or improve their portrait work, this is always a most stimulating, challenging and beneficial course.

On the first day, working from photographs, we explore ways to draw more accurately, capture a likeness, study the form of the head, the features and consider composition and pose.

For the remainder of the course we will work from models every day. For each model we start with 2 short “warm-up” sketches followed by a longer pose for the rest of the morning or afternoon. As well as constant individual tuition throughout, Carole gives a demonstration on most evenings and group appraisals at the end of each day. Group limited to 12 pupils.

You can choose to work in drawing media, watercolours, pastel pencils, soft pastels or acrylics.
