This Portrait Masterclass introduces the intricacies of working directly from the model.

This Portrait Masterclass course introduces the intricacies of working from the model, not just for the technically minded, but also for those who are interested in a painter’s perspective on the role and importance of drawing from life. Working from models each day, the Portrait Masterclass explores a range of processes and techniques including the use of colour to introduce subtleties and presence, as well as advice on capturing a likeness and overcoming difficulties. There will be with a number of shorter portrait sketching studies from the life model, investigating form through a variety of approaches and drawing materials including willow charcoal, graphite, pastels and pencil. The four day course will introduce longer poses, giving you time to develop more sustained and individual works.

Portrait painting is challenging and also requires a unique understanding of and sensitivity to the model.
