This six week course aims to deepen your portrait painting practice with a model. We will pay special attention to composition, to blocking in the overall form, to discerning the shapes of light and shadow constructing the basic structure of the head and the range of coloured values that constitutes the flesh tones. We will briefly look into the art of portraiture in its traditional approach and in its contemporary expression.
