Explore portraiture painting with the guidance of artist Luke Thompson on this one-day workshop.

You’ll paint a portrait from a reference image following step-by-step demonstrations. The aim will be to construct the portrait with a focus on facial proportions, starting with mid and dark tones and adding details and highlights as the painting progresses.

  • Who is the 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. Students are also encouraged to bring their own materials to use as well if they have them. Please bring an apron or wear old clothes to avoid getting mucky!
