Sat 23rd April | One-off Workshop | 10am-1pm | £15

A workshop designed to enable students to experiment with portraiture in a loose, expressive way. Using acrylic or oil, students will be shown how to-
• Use tone
• Mix colour
• Under-paint and draw
• Make different expressive marks.
• Know what is important detail and what can be left out
• Paint larger shapes before details
• Work with bigger brushes for a more gestural quality
• Hold the brush in different ways
• Paint small but necessary details with big brushes
• Work with thicker paint
• and more
Note; Painting demonstrations will be in acrylics or oils, but the fundamentals taught apply to all media. Students wishing to use pastel or charcoal can also be accommodated.

You will need
Paints, large flat and round brushes, acrylic or oil paint, large painting surface ie canvas or board, palette. Or your media of choice and large working surface area. Good quality portrait photographs from which to work.
