Portrait Painting


Selling Fast

Painting from the posed model is an established practice of formal portrait painting, and for many is a stimulating, energising and encouraging experience.

Led by the talented Bill Gatt, you will study anatomy and facial characteristics, style, dress and posture of the model whilst using different media and compositions.

Attention to students’ ability, individuality and modes of expression is standard practice. You will develop your skills in drawing and painting by embracing oil, acrylic, watercolour, and pastel painting with particular emphasis upon enthusiasm, practice, and self-evaluation.
