Have you ever wanted to draw or paint a portrait of a family member or favourite celebrity and not know where to start? Or perhaps your attempt at drawing a child made them look much older, or your attempt at painting a friend looked like someone else entirely! Then this beginners’ course is for you! Carole will guide you through many of the skills needed to achieve a likeness and produce a good portrait. Working from photographs, we will study the features, proportions, bone structure, pose and composition as well as colour mixing for flesh tones, hair, and backgrounds. Carole will demonstrate in a variety of media, showing you tricks and techniques to achieve your goal. You can work in monochrome with pencil, charcoal or pastel pencils, or use soft pastels or watercolours. On Saturday evening after supper there will be a portrait demonstration.
