For those who wish to improve their portrait work, this is always a most stimulating, challenging and fun week. Working in your own choice of media (watercolours, pastels and/or acrylics), we explore ways to improve drawing skills and capture a likeness through studying the form, features, composition and pose. After the first "warm up" day of drawing exercises we will be working from models all week. Carole is a popular tutor, favoured for her support and understanding. As well as constant individual tuition throughout, there is a group appraisal at the end of each day and a demonstration on several evenings. The aim is for each student to gain a feeling of accomplishment through increased perception and skills, while enjoying the atmosphere of this historic and inspirational setting.
