Painting from Life

Sat 2 November 2019, 10.30am - 4pm

A life drawing/painting workshop led by portrait and figurative artist Richard Kitson. In the workshop Richard will demonstrate how to measure the figure to establish a framework upon which to build a complete painting.

Participants will be encouraged to draw not only in pencil but consider paint as a material with which to draw, gradually adding colour and texture to describe tone and form.
