Portariture from a Live Model Workshop with Nicholas Robinson at the Schoolhouse for Art

Painting the portrait is one of the longest traditions in oil painting; from van Eyck, Titian and Velázquez through to Reynolds, Romney and Raeburn and up to our present day.

This 4 week class (18 hours in total) using a live model offers a wonderful opportunity for in-depth study of portraiture with Nicholas Robinson.

Nicholas is an FAA portrait drawing award winner, a Hennessy portrait prize nominee, a Zurich portrait prize nominee and a Royal Academy of Portrait Artists exhibitor.

This series of classes is designed to present the process of portrait painting focussing on creating realistic form and light as well as the likeness, personality and expression of the sitter.

Each participant will work from the model receiving one-to-one instruction over the block in drawing accurately, colour mixing, use of oil paints and materials, painting techniques and theory.
