Service Description

In this workshop I will teach the step-by-step process that I use to produce portrait paintings. The workshop will be a mixture of interactive demos with lots of one-to-one and group tuition. The tuition will focus on drawing, value, colour and composition (including mood and harmony). You will also learn how to use oils to achieve different effects during the build up of your finished paintings. You will finish the workshop with a painting that you will have brought from initial block in to the final finish. A suggested materials list will be provided upon signing up for this workshop. Materials will be available to buy from the Welsh Academy of Art shop. Please bring a packed lunch. 'A wonderfully inspiring teacher & studio. Lee is a very observant teacher who managed to guide my first attempt at oils right through to a finished painting in spite of my sometimes erratic daubing. He always knows how to transform what looks like a mess into what you want it to be! The studio is so atmospheric- a 19th century atelier- previously a Victorian village school, easels, plaster busts & amazing paintings all over the place also the old playground is rapidly turning into a beautiful garden. I really enjoyed my time here & think I have got a good grounding in oils.' Caroline Darrell
