In this 5 hour long workshop you will learn how to confidently develop your gouache skills and learn how to paint portraits.

Workshop will be held at Kindred Studios (W9 3HW), a beautiful building which used to be old Victorian school and now a home to 160 artists. Workshop space is beautiful and light and Kindred studios are only 10 minute walk from Queens Park (Bakerloo line) or Westbourne Park (Hammersmith and City line).

We'll start the morning with tackling the subject of finding inspiration & using reference photos and images, learning how to use visuals to create a portrait and develop your style. References will be provided to spark your inspiration and creativity (please do bring your own if you would like).

We will learn basic composition, poses and facial anatomy. You will sketch and experiment with poses, shapes and negative space, we will learn how to find the right composition for the final piece.

After we will refine sketches and start on the painting. I will introduce you to Gouache & basic Colour Theory, we will be exploring different painting techniques and gouache qualities. Experimenting with colour combinations and picking colour palette for the final piece. We will learn where to start with the portrait painting and what to remember when painting with gouache. You will create your own gouache portrait and start exploring your style and finding your voice.
