Painting portraits is not as difficult as most people assume.  It is mostly about shapes – how tall, how wide, and what are the angles – and placing three proportions.

Michael Britton’s classes are highly structured to maximise your learning and skill development. You will be guided step-by-step with both clear demonstrations and individual attention in a relaxed and friendly environment through the four sessions.

Topics covered in the masterclass:

Over the course of the 4 sessions, you will learn the process of creating a portrait painting starting from the beginning.

1st Session – Portrait study and sketching to gain better understanding about the figure drawn

2nd Session – Colour study and mixing of skin tones to create the under painting

3rd and 4th Session – Refinement of the skin tones and painting of texture
