About the event

Carole will help to demystify the process of portrait painting for you. 

We start with a “warm up” day using photographic reference in the studio, to improve observation and drawing skills, studying proportions, structure, the features, getting a likeness and skin tones. 

On subsequent days we will be working from live models, starting with several short poses before going on to paint or draw a longer pose in your choice of medium e.g. watercolour, pastel or acrylics. 

At the end of each day there will be an appraisal to evaluate the day’s work and learn from each other, at the end of the week we have a friendly, low key exhibition.

The course takes place at the beautiful Dedham hall, set in Constable countryside, with comfortable accommodation and superb food provided.
