PORTRAITS IN OILS
Whether you have spent very little or a lot of time on portraiture, and would like to learn more about traditional techniques in a friendly workshop, I would love to help you. My workshop numbers are small (maximum 4), which means I can dedicate quality time to each and every student.
I find that some people are nervous about portraiture and oils, but don't worry.I will make the whole process easy to understand, with help and encouragement all of the way.
All materials are provided.

Working with an underpainting in acrylics, followed by the overpainting in oils, we will cover the whole process from drawing to completion. including: composition, reference photos, drawing freehand or using a grid system, glazing, mediums, colour mixing, and a number of different techniques.
I demonstrate at each stage of the process and explain what we will be doing in-depth.
All sessions are facilitated in a relaxed and informal way to bring out the natural ability of students, and I work closely with each person to make the experience enjoyable and build confidence.
We only work from reference photographs taken by myself, to ensure the quality, lighting and composition are ideal for painting.
“I wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful 3 days I spent in your company and for all your kindness, and brilliant tuition. I haven’t enjoyed myself quite so much for a while and can’t wait to start my next painting. I’m so inspired I feel I could tackle almost anything at the moment, but doubtless my feet will touch the ground pretty soon, particularly now I’m back behind my desk!"
“I had to write and say THANK YOU! I have had the most fantastic weekend! I have learned a huge amount about oil painting from a SUPERB teacher; spent time with like minded enthusiasts and broken bread with some very special people. Before I came to the workshop I had lost my way a bit and my enthusiasm had dwindled but now I am all geed up!! My enthusiasm has been re-kindled and I can’t wait to pick up my brushes. Thank you both for your hospitality and encouragement and I will be back.”
