A weekend workshop - portraits - ever wanted to paint portraits?? - paint them already but want to do more???

This may be THE weekend for you.

Jude will guide you through the steps of how to create that special portrait!!

The workshop will cover how to achieve a likeness, seeing what is really there, drawing the head and the placement of the eyes, nose mouth, differing angles of the head, tonal values, colour, and perspective. Jude will do demonstrations and talks during both days.

Critiques at the end of both days will consolidate what was achieved!!

Jude will demonstrate in watercolour, but if you prefer another medium, feel free to use your preference.
