Come and learn to draw or paint portraits from life with atelier quality tuition from Christopher Clements.

Whether you want to develop your portrait sketching skills from life or want to improve your life studies for studio portraits this course will help you push your abilities to the next level.

The workshop will help you:

Working from life in a limited period of time

Getting good gesture, orientation and anatomy of the head

Use time efficiently

Treat light, shadow and halftone cleanly

Handling materials the best effect

By the end of the workshop you’ll have expanded your technical drawing and painting skills working from life. You’ll have a framework to help you approach portrait studies and make the most out of the time you have with your model.

As you’d expect with any Northern Realist course, it’s a chance to spend time concentrating on your work beside like-minded friendly artists - with all the usual tea, biscuits and friendly conversation that goes with it.
