Masterclass with Mirra Whale Portrait painting workshop

Mirra Whale Repose 2021

Mirra Whale Repose 2021

Work with Archibald Prize finalist Mirra Whale and learn how to create an engaging portrait painting that draws on the traditional Dutch master’s technique of painting tones and highlights over a coloured ground. Learn Dutch still life painting techniques whilst adapting techniques for a foundation portrait, starting on a coloured ground, and using a limited palette, learn how to build a strong rendered underpainting that helps create mood and can be applied to both still life and portraiture.

This workshop is suitable for people with drawing and painting experience, wishing to extend their skills and practice. 

Participants are required to supply their own materials for the workshop. A materials list will be available with booking.

A light lunch is included.
