November 12 – The Portrait in Watercolour with Tanya Baily

This workshop presents a fabulous opportunity to paint the portrait from life, extend your watercolour skills and gain confidence.

The morning will begin with some rigorous drawing exercises on proportion and understanding the structure of the head and face. Time will be spent on the colour and shadows of skin, preparing effective palettes, and how to render gentle transitions of tone and colour. Tanya will give tips on how best to draw and prepare for a watercolour painting. Students will learn where to start and how to apply under washes and colour for success. Tanya will teach you how composition can help to capture the character of people and poses.

Students will then work on a longer pose from a live model in the studio. This workshop is suitable for those with some experience in watercolour painting. No previous experience in figure drawing or painting is required.


In this 2-day workshop, you’ll embark on a creative journey into the world of charcoal artistry. This course is designed for aspiring artists with no prior experience, offering a hands-on exploration of charcoal’s rich, expressive possibilities.
