Taught by experienced, pre-eminent portrait and figure painters, the Saturday Portrait and Figure Painting Class introduces students to different approaches to portraiture and figure painting. During weeks 1 – 5, Rosalie will focus on the basic requirements for creating a painting of the nude figure. Students will work both in tone and colour from a series of short poses and then from a long 3 week pose, enabling them each to create their own painting. The class will enable students to work at their own pace, to take account of different levels of ability and experience. In weeks 6 – 10, James will continue to look at issues of proportion, tone and colour, as well as lighting and composition.

Rosalie Watkins trained and taught Fine Art in the atelier tradition at London Fine Art Studios. In 2013 Rosalie was a London finalist in Sky Arts’ Portrait Artist of the Year and has gone on to be featured in two books on portraiture produced by Sky Arts. More recently she has been selected for the 2016 Royal Society of British Artists exhibition, as well as winning the Michael Harding Award.

James Bland “My work incorporates diverse approaches to style and subject but begins always in drawing and painting from life. My aim at every stage is to find an image that resonates through simplicity of colour and form.”
