James Guppy I Painting the Face
The face is one of the most challenging subjects in art. As babies, we are genetically hardwired to recognise faces even before we have gained experience in the nuances of shape, proportion, and expression.
Rendering the face for portraiture requires observational skills unmatched in any other area of the visual arts. Moreover, the understanding and capturing of expression is another complex aspect to master.
During this 8 week course, working from a model as well as learning how to work from photographs, using drawing and painting techniques, students will gain a sound basis in the principles and practice of executing a portrait.
This course is the second part of our 'Year of Painting' course at BSA. Students may enrol as part of the year-long course, or just by the term as they would with any other short course.
