28 Oct Portraits in Oil Paint with Lyn Diefenbach
April 17, 2021 - April 18, 2021
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
In this Two-Day workshop with Lyn Diefenbach all aspects of portraiture will be covered, in particular information on how to achieve a good likeness and the mixing of the portrait palette.
This workshop will assist you to a greater understanding of the relationships of line, tone, colour and edge to enable you to infuse your work with dimensionality and to give the illusion of surface quality.
One portrait will be done from a photograph of your choice.
