Painting Creative Portraits with Geoff Harley - This workshop is aimed at the beginning or intermediate painter. We will examine a number of different ways to manipulate line, shape and colour when painting a portrait to create a comical and expressive image. There will be some reference to art history. Whilst acrylic paints will be the major medium, participants are encouraged to use a range of drawing and collage media. The course will begin with smaller exercises and move onto a major painting(s). Students should bring several A4 images of faces that they may want to manipulate and paint.
