Figure Painting in Oils // A Weekend Workshop with Artist Nicholas Robinson // Saturday March 9th & Sunday March 10th // 10:00 - 16:00


Painting the figure has always been a staple exercise in learning the craft of oil painting, and this weekend workshop covers the core skills required. This course is ideal for those looking to start their exploration into the art of Figure Painting, or for the more experienced artist who wants to improve their fundamentals. Nick Robinson (Florence Academy prize winner 2012 & 2013, Zurich Portrait Prize Finalist 2019 & 2021) will instruct in the visual method: translating what we observe from life into oil painting on the canvas. 

We will explore the materials involved, some theory and preparation for the model. The rest of the session will be comprised of working from the nude in one single-pose painting.  By the completion of the course participants will have a clear understanding of the techniques and steps involved in painting the figure, as well as increased levels of observational skill. No prior experience is necessary, only a strong interest in painting from life.

Course Fee: €250

* Some materials will be provided, though a small materials list will be sent to each participant.
