What you will learn
- In each demonstration I show you my first strokes, constructing the portraits and creating a likeness from the outset. This will help solidify your sitter within the picture plane and define the 3-dimensional volume, ready for the initial colours.
- We then block in our portrait with bold strokes of colour, establishing the major skin tones and a painterly background. From here we slow things down and I show the process of laying in refining strokes of detail, to make the sitter come to life!
- You’ll come away with a new understanding for how to create a realistic looking portrait, that actually looks like your sitter!
- You’ll also learn how to handle oil painting materials with ease, by just adhering to a few tried and true principles. Oil painting needn’t be daunting or over-complicated. Once you have a grasp of the fundamentals, covered in this workshop, you’ll be painting up a storm!
