Portraits in Oils

Article text
Tutor: Robert Nelmes

This workshop will explore portrait painting using oil with it’s long tradition and rightly seen as a first choice for artists over hundreds of years.

Working from photographs, discover how to capture likeness, create focus and texture, through observation and the understanding of value, colour, and drawing. We will also look at the various ways to create flesh tones through blending and layering with some anatomy thrown in for good measure.

Date: Saturday 3rd August – 10.30 to 4pm

Cost: £65 (includes all materials)
