Explore the fascination and particular challenge of portraiture through drawing and oil painting from a model. There will be a focus on technique from drawing through to finding tone and colour, covering the handling and application of paint. Focusing on anatomical drawing we will include detailed study of the human skull, the structure of the eyes, the nose, the mouth and ears. Poses will be held over several weeks and individual approaches will be discovered and encouraged.
