This is an intensive workshop by lifelong teacher and painter Valerie Wiffen. Valerie stresses the importance of working from life as a means of keeping the art of portraiture alive in the digital age and her workshop is aimed at people wanting to develop strategies for quickly developing an expressive portrait. While the focus will be on working with oils, and some fluency is expected, Valerie is also open to people working in other media should they choose to.
The day will consist of a morning pose followed by lunch and the opportunity to put the morning's learning into practice with a second pose in the afternoon.
Valerie comes to us from the UK and aims to make regular visits to South Africa, so this might be the first of many workshops with her.
