The course offers an opportunity for a sustained period of enquiry, revision and experimentation and seeks to develop both perceptual skills and a personal language in response to the human head. Referencing a broad range of contemporary and traditional artists from Rembrandt and Van Gogh to Lucian Freud and Alice Neel, this course will explore the many facets of the drawn and painted portrait. We will explore how scale, depth, focus, tonal range, viewpoint and composition can affect the works’ emotional charge. All levels welcome including beginners.
