Paul will then demonstrate his own methods of painting oil portraits, discuss his palette and his approach to colour mixing for natural looking skin tones. There will be a focus on tonal values, lost and found edges and other techniques that are helpful when trying to achieve a realistic likeness of the live model. Consideration of the work of past masters such as Velasquez, Sargent and Whistler who used similar methods to great effect in their paintings will aid in this approach. There will be opportunity during the day for one on one discussion and assistance.
Tailored for experienced artists, this workshop is not recommended for beginners. A full materials list will be provided at the time of booking.
