Students will decorate their amazing creations in bright underglaze and have their masterpiece finished with a lovely shiny clear glaze that will be fired and ready to collect depending on drying times and firing schedules. The clay provided can be either a bright white base that will enhance the colours you choose, or you may prefer a lovely warm terracotta and use an acid yellow glaze as shown in the photo.

Portrait Drawing and Painting from Life

Intensive Four Day Course

Portrait drawing and then painting from a live model is an orchestration of soft and hard edges, mixed with careful observation.  In this four-day course, Damien will guide you through his entire process of creating impactful portraits. Students will be able to submerge themselves in a comprehensive and in depth look at the engaging practice of painting a portrait as the class has a maximum of 8 people.

 

Drawings will be formed in graphite pencil as accuracy is needed to get a good likeness in a portrait. Graphite allows this while letting the user create a large range of values.

 

Oil painting will be the focus but there will also be room to discuss the use of acrylic paint.   The workshop will cover colour mixing and theory, brushwork, and ideas around composition including anatomical structure and proportion.
