Drawing & Painting the Head

14th, 21st & 28th October

This three-day course is structured to take students from the initial stages of looking at the head and making drawings to a finished portrait in oils.

We start with drawings which will deal with proportion and form, then look at compositional ideas and ways of structuring the head to help capture a likeness. Palette colours suitable for portrait painting and basic colour mixing including looking at warm and cool tones will be discussed. At each stage students will be guided by one-to-one tuition and demos and will be encouraged to develop their own personal response to the subject.

All materials provided except canvas.

Suitable for all levels.
