This two day portrait course will offer an opportunity for intensive study under the tuition of Ilaria Rosselli Del Turco. The course will allow students the freedom to work from two models. Starting with preliminary sketches we will aim to produce at least one or more ‘finished’ painting of either of the models over the two days. Under Ilaria’s guidance students will work on composition and colour mixture. Each student will be encouraged to work in their own individual way: together we will find strategies and techniques to make progresses. The tutor will also be working alongside the students demonstrating her technique. This exciting course is an intensive two days that offers a high level of tutor contact time.
Ilaria Rosselli Del Turco was born in Italy, from a family of Florentine Renaissance painters. She studied illustration and painting in Italy and in London, where she has lived since 1999.
