I tutor 8-10 week Portraiture Courses and one-day workshops during term times, to adults, architects, creative departments in companies and art societies to groups of 10-12 with easels / boards provided.
Aiming to develop your competence and confidence in depicting a likeness of a person, my structured Portraiture courses are suitable for all abilities – for those new to the subject area or drawing in general as an introduction to key elements, as well as for those with some experience who wish to develop their practice through the exercises and studies and revisit the fundamentals of this classical subject, that will enhance every other drawing experience.
I like to use a large variety of models, and establish a sharing, friendly, relaxed environment in which you can explore, develop and expand your own style and challenge your ability to gain a likeness. Gestural drawing, perspective, construction tools, form, tone, colour, hair, and composition are enjoyed through drawing and painting exercises, whilst referencing traditional and contemporary artists.
