Get to grips with the technical aspects of portrait painting under the guidance of professional teaching artist Lucy Dewsnap.

On this one-day workshop, you will delve into the process of painting a portrait from a reference image, taking particular note of facial proportions.
Come away with your own painted portrait and some new skills to put into practise in future paintings.

Who is this workshop for?

The workshop is suitable for early career artists or beginners who would like to progress from drawing to using paints in their portraits. It will be taught with step-by-step directions to build your confidence in painting.

Do I need to bring anything?

Basic materials such as pencils, charcoal, cartridge paper, brushes and acrylics will be provided, as well as drawing boards and easels. You will need to bring a canvas board or canvas paper to work on. Please bring an apron or wear old clothes to avoid getting mucky!
