Upcoming Portrait Workshop

"Moyra and Mary" - oil on linen - 16x20"

I will be teaching a 4 day portrait workshop in my Canmore studio this November.

The focus is to help you to really step up your game around seeing and accurately recreating what's in front of you. Our attention will be on:
  • careful drawing based on seeing your subject as a series of clear, simplified shapes 
  • making value and colour choices that come from accurately seeing the temperature changes that exist within the light and shadow areas of the subject
  • how to use a variety of hard and soft edges to turn form in a convincing way
