Dramatically Lit Portraits

Enjoy a three-day oil painting course responding to the works of George Bellows, led by artist-tutor Adrian Clamp.

Working from a clothed model, experiment with controlled lighting to recreate the drama, mood and intensity of Bellows’s portraits. Consider his subjects, fi nd out about his methods and learn to paint with a technique used by artists of the day.
