Art workshop with award winning UK based artist Aine Divine. The workshop would focus on painting big portraits in watercolour. Artist Aine Divine is much sought after tutor and is currently featured in several art magazines in the UK. There will be a different model each day so you will have the opportunity to explore a variety of faces. I will begin each day with a demonstration. I will take this opportunity to discuss ways I ease myself into the painting process. I’m a great believer in us all looking after ourselves as we go to paint being aware of our physical well-being. I will be encouraging you to remember to breathe and generally look after yourself, keeping a radar up for any tension that may arise..
