with Frances Ricketts
Share the knowledge, understanding and experience of art and design to develop a portrait.
Lessons will explore a variety of drawing, painting and design techniques in a range of styles and media.
Exercises using ink, gouache, watercolour and acrylic paint will identify the proportions, planes, highlights and shadows of a portrait subject from the initial stages to the finished work of a portrait on canvas.
Participants will receive a journal to work on simplifying the shapes and colours within their chosen portrait subject.
