Human Portraits Speed-Acrylics Workshop, Colchester, Fri 10 Mar 2017

*** Fully booked ***
Lois Cordelia leads this "speed-paintingworkshop, using acrylic paints, with a focus on human portraits.

Lois encourages you to let go conventional ideas about realistic and obsessive colour, and instead be expressive and spontaneous, launch into bold, sweeping brushstrokes on a large scale, and communicate more with less.
We will be working loosely based on photographic references (please feel free to bring in some of your own!), but the emphasis will be more on freedom of expression than on accurately copying an existing image. This is an ideal workshop for beginners, for those wishing to improve their human portraiture, and for anyone wanting to loosen up their painting style.

To book places: please contact Tindalls Colchester.
