Learn to Paint
Fine Art Portraiture

A specialist course focussing on old master methods and materials

This eight week tutored course is an introduction to painting in oil on canvas using principles derived from traditional working practice. Students will learn how to stretch and prepare a linen canvas and then complete a finished portrait from the model using the best hand-made paint and materials.

The portrait starts as an underpainting which is built up with a series of glazes. When the tones are established, a palette of warm and cool fleshtones is mixed to develop the shadows, lights and halftones. The underpainting provides depth and naturalism from within.
