About the Workshop

Working from a model the workshop is set into 3 parts. The first part concentrates on finding the basic geometric shapes in a face and assessing the tonal values of these shapes. For this we will be using charcoal on paper and working with the model. This exercise is also a good way of loosening up and becoming familiar with the models features. In the second part I will be talking about how to lay out a palette, looking at colour mixing and the importance of palette preparation.You will then mix your own palette and become more confident in mixing and assessing the colours needed. In the final part of the workshop we will be working on portraits in oil, using a method that allows the eye and palette to work instinctively together, thereby laying the pathway to creating stronger more characterful portraits.
