EXPRESSIVE PORTRAIT PAINTING WORKSHOP
Sunday 1st March from 10.00am - 4.00pm
EDS Studio, 4 Thistle Street NW Lane, EH2 1DR
From Dürer to Dumas, artists have found people, and the portrait in particular, to be a source that is both inspirational and challenging.
This one day, intensive workshop will encourage students to work instinctively and directly with a range of tools and a variety of techniques to produce a series of studies of the human head.
We will work on a number of poses to encourage expressive mark making while exploring colour, tone and composition.
During the workshop the tutor will reference relevant artists, demonstrate technique and teach on a one to one basis.
Techniques explored in the workshops will include monotype, drawing and painting. Areas covered to include tone, colour, composition, line, mark-making expression and basic anatomy.
Surfaces-paper, primed card/canvas
