Gallery – Portrait Painting

Here is a selection of work done in the autumn/winter of 2012.  The theme for this course was portraits.  At the beginning of the course we looked at colour, painting a colour wheel and identifying colour properties.  We practised a ‘wet on wet’ paint technique and worked through various drawing exercises.  We then spent the last three sessions working on a portrait.  The aim of this was not to faithfully represent a person but to add our own ideas so that the final artwork was our own representation of that person.
