Portrait Painting Workshop with Tim Benson VPROI

13 January 2017 - 13 January 2017

The New School of Art, Trinity Buoy Wharf, 28 Clipper House, E14 0JW

About the course:

This Portrait Painting Workshop will begin with a brief introduction from Tim Benson about the philosophy behind his style of work as well as the choice of materials he uses. Students will be asked to undertake some small, quick oil sketches. Each sketch eliminating the need for detail, rather concentrating on the basics of form, tone and colour. Later in the day there will be more sustained poses where students will have the chance to consolidate the ‘loose’ approach on a larger scale, retaining the painterly language and avoiding the impulse to add detail. At the end of the day there will be a one-on-one critique/discussion of student’s work.

About the tutor:
