4 Day Portrait Painting Workshop in Oils with Jess Le Clerc

Register Here

In this comprehensive 32hr oil painting workshop, students will learn techniques and skills that Jess has gathered as an emerging Australian portrait painter and teacher. Students will complete a portrait painting from photograph over 4 days, receive daily demos and step by steps from Jess whilst being given guided individual tuition.

Students will learn how to paint with three modes; value, temperature and perspective.

Students will be equipped with understanding of how to design the style of a portrait, how to make an underdrawing, understanding what is important in an underpainting, and how to complete a full colour portrait with individual style, not a copied style.

Jess will also teach methods she has personally learnt from professional artists including Casey Baugh, David Kassan, Shana Levenson and Robin Eley.

  • Winsor & Newton Professional Oil Paints for each student 
  • Easel for each student to work from
