Art of the Portrait workshop, 22nd April

Art of the Portrait workshop, 22nd April

Join me, Desiree Crossing, for this full day intensive portrait painting workshop.  I'll be teaching you the techniques I use to create my most successful portrait works. Under the practical guidance of a professional portrait artist, you will be taken step by step through the process - from materials, composing your painting, to mixing vibrant skin tones with increased confidence, and how to achieve a likeness. The session will include live demonstrations and, as class tickets are strictly limited, you will receive plenty of one on one time with the instructor. Previous experience is an advantage but not essential to engage in this rewarding (and forgiving!) style of painting.


What we cover in the workshop:

  • introduction to oil paints and mediums
  • how to compose a painting for more striking effect
  • basic structure of human facial anatomy
  • foundations of colour theory and mixing dynamic skin tones  
  • how to build layers to create depth 
  • all materials included
  • Morning and afternoon tea included


Date: 22nd April, 2023

Time: 10am-4:30pm


All materials required for the workshop are included, but the store is open for you to make purchases should you wish during the course of the day. An email will be sent to you closer to the date with information on how the day will run. See you there!
