The Oil Portrait - Getting the WOW Factor | Lyn Diefenbach

The Oil Portrait - Getting the WOW Factor | Lyn Diefenbach

Do you want to create portraits that breathe character and life? Portraits that convey a presence? Let Lyn show you how…

The workshop covers all aspects of portraiture, focussing on capturing a good likeness.

What will I learn?

You’ll learn how to manipulate relationships of line, tone, colour and edge to infuse your work with dimensionality and impact.

Lyn’s workshop will enable you to work on your own individual subject. Enjoy clear, informative demonstrations and individual attention at your easel.

One portrait will be done from a photograph of your choice. Learn how to use a photograph as a painter’s tool and to go beyond its limitations. The techniques that you learn in this class will keep you in good stead when painting from life.

Who is this course suitable for?

This workshop is suitable for all skill levels, however basic knowledge and skills in oils and colour is a prerequisite.

Bonus

Lyn will also give instruction on what to look for when painting hands with the opportunity to make your own “how-to” chart with illustrations. This is a separate activity to your head and shoulders portrait. Definitely creating the WOW FACTOR.

  • Lyn is a great tutor! I now feel confident to tackle colour mixing for portraits and have learned how less blending produces a lively finished portrait. I am extremely happy and hope to do another workshop with Lyn in the future. The venue is nice and spacious and light, very welcoming atmosphere, great all-round experience... Jenny, Wamuran.
