During this workshop we will be focusing our study on completing a head & shoulders portrait in oils. Beginning with the structural drawing and paying particular attention to accuracy of shapes in the face, we will then transfer the completed drawing onto toned canvas to work on the painting.

Throughout we will be adhering to quality draftsmanship while utilising colour and value to create mood in the painting. In the end students will have gained in confidence over the portrait painting process.
