Description

Progressing with Portrait Painting

Take your portrait painting to the next level. A course for those with experience of portrait painting and drawing who want to advance their skills.

On this course we’ll consider questions of perception and identity in relation to a variety of artists including Rembrandt, Manet and Sargent.

We’ll explore and evaluate the use of photography as a visual source and how the fleeting moment is translated into painting.
