About the Course

An ideal introduction to portrait painting with a monochrome underpainting produced on Day One, with attention to facial proportions and tone. This forms the structure for the application of colour and final development of the portrait on Day Two.

Working from a reference photograph and a step by step process, the workshop guides you through painting a portrait. The workshop is perfect for both beginners and painters with some experience.

Price £120 for both days running from 10am to 4pm.

A packed lunch is not provided, but you can enjoy a pub lunch next door in the break.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Cordell will supply reference photographs for you to work from. However, if you would like to work from your own reference photograph, please email in advance to Cordell so that he can advise. You photograph will need to have good lighting, a good tonal range and be sight size/A4.

Paper and paint is provided but do bring your own brushes (if you have favourites) and palettes and palette knives. An old shirt or apron over your clothes (or old clothes) is also advisable.
