Speed-Acrylics Human Portraits Workshop, Newmarket, 27th Aug 2016

June 28, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

On Saturday, 27th August 2016, Lois Cordelia will lead another of her popular "speed-painting" workshops at Tindalls, Newmarket, focussing on human portraits, using acrylics. Lois encourages you to let go conventional ideas about realistic colour and obsessive detail, and instead be expressive and spontaneous with colour, launch into bold, sweeping brushstrokes on a large scale, and communicate more with less.

The focus will be more on freedom of expression than on achieving an accurate likeness, though Lois will be happy to give advice on both. Prior experience of portrait painting is helpful but not essential. Ideal workshop for beginners and anyone wanting to loosen up their painting style.

Cost: £35 (all materials included)

Venue: Tindalls Arts & Crafts, 50-52 High Street, Newmarket, Suffolk CB8 8LE

Date: Saturday 27th August 2016

Times: 10.00 am - 4.00 pm.

Registration is at 9.45 am at the art desk downstairs. Morning and afternoon tea and coffee are provided. Please bring a packed lunch if you wish or there are several good cafes locally.
