In this workshop, we will touch on the fundamental principles of traditional portrait painting such as composition, tonal relationships and the importance of edges to add to the illusion of depth.
We will also look at colour and temperature in general and as they apply to the subtleties of flesh in particular.
A direct method of painting is encouraged that requires little in the way of drawing skills but focuses rather on the broad mass and then the gradual build up of the painting as the various elements are refined.
Please note this class only accepts students above 18 years of age.
We would like to pay our respects to the traditional owners of the land on which our building stands, their leaders, past, present and emerging.
