4 Day Portrait Art Course with Heidi Beyers

Monday 10th March 2014-Thursday 13th March 2014

Art course

Would you like to be able to paint a beautiful portrait of a family member or a friend? You will learn how to use a specific method, and will watch your painting come together bit by bit – the result? – a truly realistic rendering of both model and fabric!

 You will also be taught how to mix true-to-life flesh tones, using only 4 basic colours plus white.  This simplified method enables you to paint skin tones accurately from the start – no guesswork needed!!

Have you every painted a portrait which just does not end up looking like the person you are trying to paint? Learn how to use a corrective method to fix up the portrait and achieve an exact likeness.

This course is essentially a portrait course, however you are welcome to paint anything else instead (landscape, seascape, still life etc.) or you could do a beginner’s course if you have not done art before.
