Portrait Painting Masterclass with Andy JamesCourse Code: WC2204151 Tutor: Andy James Course Dates: Friday - Sunday, 7th - 9th July 2023 Days: 3 Times: 10.00am – 5.00pm Experience Level: Advanced Fee: £360 Location: Art Academy London, 165A Mermaid Court, SE1 1HR From: £360.00
This course is designed to help you further develop your portait painting skills, focusing on both creating a likeness and increasing the expressive aspects of your portrait skills. These two elements will be explored together over this three-day masterclass; you’ll first make several charcoal studies, followed by a brief oil sketch and finally, a fully developed portrait in oil. You’ll focus on accuracy of observation and measurement, while also making a fresh, energised and expressive response to the model. By the end of the masterclass, you will have developed your existing skills and knowledge of structure, tone, colour, composition and express use of paint and charcoal, and you will have completed one portrait painting and a number of briefer sketches and studies. The class has the benefit of 1:8 model to student ratio, as well as tuition from a talented professional artist.
Throughout this masterclass, you’ll receive regular one-to-one guidance from Andy James. A self taught artist, Andy has been painting for over 25 years, capturing incredible likeness and energy of his subjects through his sumptuous, rigorous and painterly approach. Andy has worked on many prestigious commissions of well-known public figures. He was the winner of the Carroll Foundation Award, the Changing Faces Award and of BBC’s Star Portraits, and served as the Vice President of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters from 2008 to 2014.
