Portrait from Life in Graphite/Oils | Andrew Bonneau

Portrait from Life in Graphite/Oils | Andrew Bonneau

About this workshop

Study portraiture with nationally-renowned realist painter, Archibald and Moran Prize finalist, Andrew Bonneau.

In this 3 day workshop, you will be guided through the process of drawing and/or painting a single portrait from life, focusing on accurate observation of the model and learning from Andrew’s expertise in perceiving and capturing the essence of his portraiture subjects.

What will I learn?

Through demonstrations and discussions, you will be guided through the complete process of creating a portrait, including:
• understanding proportion, anatomy and perspective
• conceptualising the model in relation to the light source
• modelling form
• understanding colour theory and paint handling
• creating an initial ‘block in’ in graphite
• developing a refined drawing, then transferring the drawing to canvas and beginning painting.

The same model will pose for all three days, allowing you to create a single drawing or painting
