Painting Portraits in Oil

Painting the Portrait in Oil - A two-day workshop

Learning to paint portraits from a photograph is a poor approach. The common tendency is for the beginning artist to emulate the language of photography. The result is often a dry, lifeless work.

The problem, too, for the student artist beginning to draw and paint from life is that the tendency to mimic a photograph is overwhelming.

The surest and most efficient way to learn how to paint is by copying master artists. Every great artist has learned by copying. This is where you learn the language of painting.

The American portraitist John Singer Sargent was an exemplary portraitist and continues to strongly influence artists today. In copying Sargent's elegant portrait of Rosina Ferrera you will learn not only how to mix realistic flesh tones and how to model facial form but also how to resolve the many portrait painting issues that continually bedevil painters.

All materials are supplied. Included with the Workshop is Michael Britton’s Painting the Portrait in Oil.

Class size is limited to 10.

Testimonial Kuala Lumpur


The pace of your step by step teaching was not too fast nor too slow. Also, the style of teaching and class was friendly.

I also like the relevant history you added from time to time along the workshop. It helps me understand the context more.

Your tips or guidance on how to paint professionally are very useful e.g not to copy but paint in our own language, comparing painting with piano playing makes me understand better about rhythm of painting, etc.
