Study portrait painting with nationally-renowned realist painter, Archibald and Doug Moran Prize finalist, Andrew Bonneau. 
In this workshop students will spend 3 days developing a single painting. The emphasis will be on the accurate observation of the model as well as understanding tone and colour. 

Working from a live model for the entire workshop and beginning from an initial 'block in' in graphite, we will proceed to develop a refined drawing which we will then transfer to canvas to begin painting. We will then develop a tonal underpainting, followed by a full colour layer. All aspects of the process will be discussed and demonstrated, such as proportion, perspective, anatomy, conceptualising the model in relation to the light source, modelling form, colour theory and paint handling.


The more experience you have in painting and drawing from life the better, but the workshop is suitable for all levels.
