Service Description

In this workshop I will teach the step-by-step process that I use to produce portrait paintings. The workshop will be a mixture of interactive demos with lots of one-to-one and group tuition. The tuition will focus on drawing, value, colour and composition (including mood and harmony). I will teach you how to render the forms of the face in oils and how to best capture the character or essence of your model. You will learn a lot about how to handle oil paints to achieve different effects during the build up of your finished paintings. You will finish the workshop with a painting that you will have brought from initial block in to the final finish. A suggested materials list will be provided upon signing up for this workshop. Please bring a packed lunch. 'A wonderfully inspiring teacher & studio. Lee is a very observant teacher who managed to guide my first attempt at oils right through to a finished painting in spite of my sometimes erratic daubing. He always knows how to transform what looks like a mess into what you want it to be! The studio is so atmospheric- a 19th century atelier- previously a Victorian village school, easels, plaster busts & amazing paintings all over the place also the old playground is rapidly turning into a beautiful garden. I really enjoyed my time here & think I have got a good grounding in oils.' Caroline Darrell
