    Portraiture is an immensely rewarding painting experience.  Even those who are just starting out in art find that the activity of painting another person is immediately engaging.  

    Some artists mistakenly avoid portraiture as they feel it is "too advanced" for the level they are at.  Nothing is futher from the truth.  

    One of the great aspects of portraiture is that it allows an artist to explore their use of colours and styles to capture the soul of their subject in a way that surpasses a photographic image.  If you have a look at some of the works in our student gallery you will see a range of works that each have artistic merit regardless of the level of technical skill.

    This is a course for oil painters who love portraiture, but who may not yet have portraiture skills or experience, especially in painting a portrait from life.
