    • Understanding the proportions and planes of the head and using props such as the skeleton and skull to inform understanding and develop a deeper knowledge of the underlying structure of the form
    • Using sight-size to capturing an accurate likeness of the sitter and bringing out the best in your model
    • How to organise a complicated subject with a simple value range
    • Assembling an appropriate palette of colour and mixing accurate colour values
    • Paint handling and edge control
    • Controlling focus within portrait painting and overall design

    The Facilities

    Each class is limited to eight students working from two models in sight-size. The workshop room is located within the main school of The London Atelier of Representational Art.

    ‘A week workshop at LARA was a chance to selfishly devote all my time and energy to the one thing I love doing most. It was very concentrated in a positive way, the environment was relaxed , the course well structured, the tutor generous with time one to one as well to the group as a whole. I felt I got lost in my own world of endeavour and pleasure at trying and it did not matter not being the best in the group. I wanted the week to last longer – being a small group also was lovely.’ C Barnes
