Online bookings for this workshop are currently unavailable. If you wish to book a place please use the “Contact Us” link at the top to send a message to the office and we will reply quickly. You may also download an application form from here.
In this workshop, you can choose the subject that you want to concentrate on for the five days. Luminosity and light will be the focus while being equipped with technical know-how. For the portraits, you will be led through gaining a good likeness and on to mixing believable flesh colours as well as sculpting the form. In-depth teaching of colour will enable the floral painters to firstly recognise and then be able to combine the subtle nuances that their subject presents. There’ll be plenty of demos and individual easel time. Open to all comers, 18 years and over. The model’s fee will be included in the requirement list.
