BEGIN PORTRAITS IN OILS = JANUARY 2016

Hi Cat Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend.  You are such a good tutor - I learnt so much this weekend and was always terrified of doing portraits before! The notes you have sent a great too - very comprehensive. Best wishes Louise


Dear Cat What a splendid weekend I had under your dynamic tutelage.  Thank you for very generously supplying course notes which I will harness at my next portrait attempt. It was a fantastic idea to tape the two paintings inside the box and I arrived home easily.  Keep all future boxes to repeat the exercise for others and my next visit! Many thanks indeed - your innate passion inspires all our creative juices to flow.  Well Done.  Kindest regards

Cat, Many thanks for the wonderful weekend.  The second I took the picture of Alfie out of the car I immediately noticed mistakes – it IS good to take a step back! I really feel i have learnt a great deal, even if the drawing up of the portrait is a really painful experience for me -  but worth it in the end.  Thank you so much for all your help.  Kindest regards Angela


Hi Cat,  almost home (another half hour). I just wanted to say a very big thankyou for all your fantastic instruction this weekend, the constant support and belief in me has meant so much and gave me the courage to leave my comfort zone and explore new possibilities. I promise to finish sharon and will send you a picture. I will email you if I get stuck. I will be back as you are such an inspiration. You are an amazing tutor, but more importantly you are a new friend to treasure. Thankyou again for a fantastic weekend.

STUDENTS WORK = FEBRUARY OIL PAINTING WEEKENDS 2016

oil portrait painting weekends

The 1st day of the May weekend of portraits in oils

Beginners oil portrait weekend
Extreme skill in oil painting being shown by this student - very excellent oil painting   Very good tonal observation and student's brush marks in oils   Wonderful interpretation - original brush marks, brave colour and some clever oil paint blending

Good directional mark making, good tonal observation. Lovely 'impressionistic' small mark making   This student has lengthened the face and brought in her own ideas.   This portrait painting weekend is difficult - you have to master OIL painting AND facial drawing - very difficult!!

Isn't this lovely? A good likeness - good tonal values and a 'fragility' captured in the oil brush marks.   Some excellent pastel work of understanding eyes, noses and mouths is also undertaken on the 1st day.   See how easy it is with 'PASTELS' !! MUCH MUCH harder when you work with oil paint!!
