“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”

Pablo Picasso

Portraiture is a fascinating subject. It is intriguing how many different ways artists find to create a portrait.    There are no rules as to how we approach painting a portrait but many find it a little scary knowing how or where to begin. These workshop sessions are ideal if you are seeking those first tentative steps, and if you do have a little  experience, they are excellent for training and furthering your skills. Painting a portrait needn't be scary or intimidating but instead, fun, engaging and rewarding.

I will take you step by step right from the beginning in easy to learn exercises, simplifying what may have seemed a complex process. We'll cover the basics, working together in a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere at your own speed. The groups are small so you'll get plenty of 1 on 1 guidance from me, exploring everything from how to draw a person to playing with colour using fun techniques and gathering handy tips along the way. Before you know it you will have painted your first portrait.

If you would like one to one sessions I offer these via zoom and occasionally in my London studio. These sessions are for those artists who would like mentoring and/or feedback in their practice. Sessions can be booked by the hour or as a programme of sessions over 6 months or a year. The sessions can be tailored to your needs providing support and encouragement throughout your development. For those looking for longer term mentoring, a personalised programme will be designed to suit your development needs. 1-2-1 sessions are for all skill levels.
