Christmas Holiday // Painting the Contemporary Portrait

Over five days this course will offer students the opportunity to make paintings from online live models and the art of the past. The first two days will be spent studying and making transcriptions of the head as it appears in great art. The final three days will be spent painting from live models who will pose throughout the day. Emphasis will be placed on colour mixing and understanding tonal relationships. Examples from the art of the past to be studied include Helene Schjerfbeck and Alice Neel, as well as earlier artists such as El Greco and Goya; one-to-one teaching and group discussions will take place throughout each day. Suitable for all levels.
