Capturing a likeness
Several new faces were welcomed to our regular portrait workshops – and with Julie, our volunteer model, the group produced a fine set of work.
Pastels seemed to be the most popular choice of the day but watercolours, oils, pencils and graphite sticks were all in use through the afternoon, during which some remarkable likenesses were achieved.
Some newcomers, fresh from the recent series of life classes, found the challenge of portrait painting a natural extension of the skills they’ve just developed. Here you can see the artists hard at work – and Julie of course - just how did she keep so still for so long?
If you’d like to come and try a session, simply turn up on the day – it’s just £5 for the afternoon and the next one is on Monday 13th May at 1.30pm.
If you want further details, please e-mail John Washington - and should you fancy having a portrait painted of yourself (or a relative or friend), you’re most welcome to volunteer as our model.
