If you have a solid foundation in painting, then portraiture is the ideal way to expand your skills.  Your tutors will help you to understand the importance of colour, composition and tone to achieve a realistic likeness of another person

Portraiture is an immensely rewarding experience and and this class will provide students with the skills necessary to depict something as complex as the human face, with the goal of capturing the soul of their subject in a way that surpasses the photographic image.

Please note - this art course incorporate the use of live models and model fees are included in the term tuition fee.

Selected Works by the Tutor

These classes will develop the skills involved in crafting a realistic portrait. Students will begin the term by developing an accurate charcoal drawing, before moving onto an oil painting working within a limited range of colours. Classes will cover the following key areas:

  • The basic anatomy of the human face
  • Simplifying the face to lay the foundations for a successful portrait
  • Achieving a likeness
  • Tonal value relationships
  • Colour theory
  • Painting techniques (brushwork, texture, blending)
  • Composition

Throughout the term, students will learn how shapes, form, tone and colour can achieve a sense of realism, and capture the essence of their subject. Students will have the opportunity to develop a highly rendered, completed artwork by the end of the 8 weeks, working from a combination of live models and photographic images.
