3-day Classical Portrait Painting Workshop with Brian Smyth
This three-day intensive workshop with Brian Smyth, artist and tutor from the Angel Academy of Art, Florence, Italy, provides an excellent introduction to classical portrait painting, and demonstrates many of the key principles and techniques currently being taught at the realist painting academies in Florence and elsewhere.
Working with a limited colour palette, based on the Zorn palette system, Brian will teach you a step-by-step process to painting expressive and realistic portraits. Setting up and organising your palette, colour theory and mixing, understanding value and mastering edge quality are just some of the subjects that will be covered, discussed and demonstrated.
Students will work on several important exercises during this workshop as well as spending two full days painting a life model. Demonstration paintings, slide presentations and in depth personal critiques will be provided throughout.
This Workshop can also be booked in conjunction with our Classical Portrait Drawing Workshop for a reduced fee of €450. To book both Workshops at this price please contact us at Galway Arts Centre.
