Oil Painting: Self Portraits (February 17th & 24th)


With Mark Bletcher

This is a two day course on:
Saturdays, February 17th & 24th,
10.00 – 16.00

On this immersive course, you will learn how to capture a self-portrait in oil paints. 

Over two days, you will learn how to use different methods to help you capture your own likeness and create an image that represents yourself! Using mirrors, you will work slowly to build up an image using an indirect method of painting. 

These skills in oil painting, whilst catered towards portraiture, can be applied to any subjects of interest!
