First day working on a child’s portrait on Strathmore toned paper. Second day working on an adult portrait on white Colourfix paper with watercolour underpainting. Penelope will demonstrate to start with, explaining measuring of shapes and proportions. Students will receive notes on the measuring of heads etc.
Penelope recommends using an iPad for looking at the image, as it can be enlarged if needed to see detail at end. Photocopy enlargements distort colour and tone.
