The class has the benefit of 1:6 model to student ratio, as well as tuition from a talented professional artist. Starting with a preliminary drawing in line on day one and moving onto a tonal preliminary drawing on day two, the focus will then be on producing oil sketches on the third day, while on the final two days it is all about completing a finished painting. Under Sam’s guidance, you will learn how to complete a portrait from a ‘cold’ start in the life drawing room, through the imaginative and practical stages of construction, to the final execution . This exciting course is an intensive five days that offers a high level of tutor contact time.
