Portrait Painting with Tim Benson
Sunday 24th January 2021, 10am - 4pm

Tim will be teaching participants how he makes his portraits, using quick, bold marks of thick oil paint. Participants will produce three paintings on board, two on smaller boards in the morning and a larger painting in the afternoon. Tim is a highly experienced teacher who will demonstrate, instruct and inspire throughout the day.

There will be two models in the studio to work from and all materials will be provided. Paints will be Winsor and Newton’s Artisan Water-mixable Oils requiring no turpentine in the studio.
