Keith Morton – 2 Day Portraiture Course

£150.00 | 13th November - 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM | Spaces available: 7

Two Day Course – Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th November

The aim of this course is to give anyone new to portraiture a good foundation in the principles of creating a likeness, through an understanding of head construction, positioning of features and effective use of colour. You will learn how a good use of tone can bring reality and structure to your work; essential to successful portrait painting.

This course is suitable for beginners in portrait painting, but with some drawing ability. If you already paint portraits, you will have plenty to learn from Keith, whether it be, drawing tips, his use of colour or his economy of brush strokes and effortless style. Having two full days in which to immerse yourself, you will be able to paint multiple pictures from different reference photos and really move on in your portrait work.

Includes homemade lunch, refreshments and cream tea both days
