In this intense two day workshop you will learn how to create a realistic facial portrait from the life model. Day one focuses on constructing a tonal underpainting, rendering a good foundation to build your portrait, strengthening your observational skills. Day two focuses on how to set out a basic oil colour palette for mixing skin tones, fine tuning colour observation skills and completing a portrait painting study using oils.
