What is the course about?

This course will guide you through the different acrylic techniques you can use to paint portraits with impact.

We will be looking at the work and palettes of well-known past/present portrait artists and emphasis will be placed on capturing personality. Demonstrations will be given on brushwork, artistic licence, how to paint features, panting hair and skin tone colour mixing.
