portraiture from a photograph

Painting Portraiture From A Photograph // A Weekend Workshop with Artist Lynn Kennedy // Saturday April 6th & Sunday April 7th // 10:00 - 16:00


We are delighted to welcome Artist Lynn Kennedy to Flux Studios to teach a new weekend painting workshop!  In this workshop, Lynn will explain her approach to achieving a likeness in oil paints from a photo reference.  From taking the best images to work with, Lynn will guide you through the different stages of representation through to the final painting.

Students will start by learning how to get correct proportions in an initial sketch and layout and use this to form a strong tonal underpainting that will be the backbone of your finished, full colour painting.  We will explore colour, building surface and form, adding detail, correcting and creating a likeness.  We will also talk about the best photograph references to use to create the most successful paintings.  We will explore other methods to get your initial drawing accurate such as gridding, transferring and sight size sketching.

By the end of the course participants should expect to feel confident with how to approach a portrait and comfortable that they will have the skills and knowledge to achieve a likeness.

The course is suitable for beginner or intermediate painters who want to improve their art.

Course Fee: €250
