Explore the fundamentals of drawing and painting from observation on this 2-day online workshop taught by artist Luke Thompson.

Day 1: Participants will use a photograph to complete a portrait in graphite. You will be guided through the basics of light, shadow, form and proportion to achieve a likeness of the photograph.

Day 2: Participants will work from still life to complete a painting in acrylic or oil. You will discuss palettes, practice colour mixing, and be guided through the techniques of a painting in oils or acrylics.

By the end of this 2-day online workshop you will have learnt a variety of fundamental drawing and painting techniques through completion of a portrait and still life study.
