In this one day workshop we will explore how to create a loose, colourful portrait using bold gestural brushstrokes. We will look at painting techniques including wet-into-wet, lifting colour, layering and more.
Beginning with a group exercise to capture the same face (photo provided by tutor), you will then use these techniques and apply them to create your own chosen portrait.

Additional Information: Participants will need to bring along watercolour paints, watercolour paper (A4 size minimum) and brushes - inc flat wash brush. Kitchen roll. A clear high resolution colour photograph of their chosen portrait.
