To accompany our current exhibition at the Graves Gallery, GAZE: A Retrospective of Portraits by Lorna May Wadsworth
, artist Brian Smith will be leading a portrait painting workshop using soft pastels to evoke the artist's style.
This will be a comprehensive day of tuition looking at the full spectrum of working in this exciting, impromptu and rewarding medium, from making the initial sketch through to completion, including seeing and portraying physical characteristics, modelling with colour, light and shade, and the constituents of personality.
Some experience of portraiture is useful but not essential. All materials are provided. There will be a break for lunch, but lunch is not provided.
