In this workshop, the techniques, skills and studio secrets required to create realistic oil portraiture will be demonstrated as we work one-on-one over four weeks to create your own work of art. We will cover rules of colour, layering and mediums as well as address the steps in pursuing your own personal styles and processes.

During the two hour sessions you will be taken through the oil painting process, from the painting’s initial base layers through to the final highlights. Everyone will work on one portrait over the course of the workshop. This class is a suitable introduction for both beginner and experienced artists to the oil painting techniques used in realistic portraiture.

During the first session you will be welcomed and briefed on the class outline before being provided with a choice of source images to paint from during the workshop (or you’re welcome to bring your own). You will also be provided with a ready-prepared painting support before being given a walkthrough of the prior preparation stages. The remaining three sessions will focus on the painting and later completion of our oil portraits before a final class discussion.

An open dialogue is encouraged during the classes as we work together to improve your understanding of the practice and endeavour to advance your own skill-set.
The tuition cost of $200 will cover 8 hours of tuition, all materials and supplies, plus tea and coffee.
