Sunday Figure Painting Workshop


Learn to paint the human figure – for free

Workshop leader: Simon Dunstan

Sunday 22nd May 10.30am – 3.00pm

Making the jump from drawing to painting can be a bit daunting and yet for many it is the natural progression of their interest in describing the human figure. No one is going to learn to paint competently in four hours and yet that is precisely the amount of time that we will give you to grasp the fundamentals – it’s enough to get you going.

On Sunday the 22nd May we will be running a workshop for those who wish to start painting the figure in oils. This is not for the absolute beginner but for those who have some drawing under their belt and are not sure of the best way forward with figure and oil paint.

  • The workshop will run from 10.30am – 3.00pm with a break for lunch.
  • There will be a demonstration and discussion of method followed by an opportunity to paint the model yourself with instruction.
  • This session is free, there will be a modest charge for lunch if you choose to take it with us. (Recommended)
  • You are welcome to bring your own materials or we can provide you with a very basic kit for £45 including two brushes, four tubes of paint and a surface to paint on.
  • The colours we will use are Ivory Black, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red and Titanium White – known as the Zorn palette
  • There will be a nude model

*Dear friends, we aim for around sixteen in the studio, in the event that we become oversubscribed, we will always prefer those who have attended our courses or sessions.
