Drawing Portraits Like a Pre-Raphaelite (February 17th)


With Edwin Moreton

This is a one day course on:
Saturday, February 17th,
10.00 – 16.00 

Renowned Pre-Raphaelite painters Edward Burne-Jones and Dante Gabriel Rossetti produced stunning drawings of female subjects from their own carefully posed portrait photographs, or from those of specially commissioned photographers. They did not simply copy photographs but imbued their drawings with the beauty, sensibilities, and technical brilliance of famous Old Masters such as Botticelli, Michelangelo, and Leonardo. 

Join us for a day exploring Pre-Raphaelite images, drawing techniques, and sensibilities using conte crayons on a variety of textured Ingres drawing papers to create your own original works of art!

Full instructions and guidance will be provided throughout the day to enable the enhancement of your observation and drawing skills. 

All art materials and images/source materials required for the course will also be provided.

Need to cancel your booking? You must inform us at least one week before the course’s start date to guarantee a refund.
