This 5 week course will introduce you to the techniques used to paint portraits and the human figure as well as the theory that lies behind them. We'll look at art-historical examples of master oil paintings to deconstruct what makes them so successful and paint from carefully chosen resource images to practice giving the illusion of convincing form and volume. By the end of the course you will have the skills and confidence to embark on your own oil paintings of friends and family and understand the steps to conveying a likeness and characterful mood.
Refunds can be made up to one week before course begins. A £5 transaction fee will be deduced.
