Sarah Wimperis – Inspired by Vincent : Portraits


Medium: Acrylic
Date/Time: Monday 20th May 2019, 10am - 4pm
Price: £50


This workshop is a fun, right-brain stimulating exploration of the style and techniques of Vincent Van Gogh and is open to all levels of artist from professional to complete beginner. You will look at some reproductions of Van Gogh’s works and Sarah will demonstrate some of his techniques before you either create your own version of your choice of his paintings or use his style to paint an image of your own. You may like to bring a reference photo to work from if you would prefer to create an original painting. Sarah advises that you choose an image of a person who isn’t showing too much of their teeth and if you would prefer to paint a self-portrait you will need to bring along a small self-standing mirror.

All abilities very welcome.
