Capturing people, in watercolour, is a great way of producing a lively portrait. My fifth book was published in September 2023 by The Crowood Press, called Painting Portraits in Watercolour, so this day will bring that book to life. This day is all about painting, rather than drawing so we will be working from photos not a live model, and we will explore transfer techniques - if Vermeer used the Camera Obscura, then we are allowed to use modern equivalents (in my opinion). We will explore both layering to build realistic skin tones and high energy portraits with a more jazzy vibe. I can't wait!! This course will be repeated on 11 October and you might also be interested in Portraits in line and wash on 20 September. The course will be held at Knowl Hill near Maidenhead, Berkshire, to provide you with an inspiring and relaxing environment. All materials are provided, along with tea/coffee. No experience is needed to fully enjoy the day. If you already love painting in watercolours, you will be provided with plenty of stimulation! Liz will let everyone go at their own pace to get the most out of the day.
