Draw & Paint a Portrait in 60min, with Amanda Webster

With your host John

Join artist Amanda Webster for this entertaining and informative paint-along webinar in collaboration with the Henley Arts & Crafts Guild * Details below * Broadcast live from England on 2 September 2022.


**See Reference photo and recommended materials below**


Join Amanda Webster to learn how to draw the structure of a face by measuring the distances between the features to ensure a likeness. Learn how to apply coloured wet on wet washes to bring the face alive, then detail the beard and hair with lifting out technique. Finish up with an optional use of salt for texture on the beard. All in 60min!
