Essence of a Portrait

27th October 2022

Course suits: Those with drawing and painting skills interested in creating a subtle Portrait. 

Objectives: In this workshop Michelle Watson shares her techniques for creating an abstract interpretation of the face while retaining its form.

Using oil paint on canvas, the beauty of the oil paint's pigments and the versatility of its use will convert you into having a long love affair. 

Using diverse mark-making you will develop your own style. Michelle will share with you how every painting must start with a strong foundation and every artist must know when to stop!

You should not expect to finish your portrait in class (though you may), but you will go away with enough knowledge to complete your work at home. 

Materials: Please bring along a photograph of someone you would like to paint. A canvas of 30 X 40 cm and any paints and brushes you may want to use, though a selection will be provided for you. 

Tutor: Michelle Watson

Your course includes all refreshments and lunch with wine. 


Course Fee: £90
