Figure Painting Course with Rose Hilton Cornwall


This new two day Figure Painting Course is taught by Rose Hilton who is among the most renowned figure painters in the country. Rose will be guiding students through observing and capturing the figure in an interior; focusing initially on drawing and moving into painting from the model in oil paint. Informal discussion will be used to help students develop confidence in their approach to painting the figure. Rose is the most generous of artists and has a long career from which to offer a wealth of experience. A life model will be worked from throughout the course.

All drawing materials, supports and paint will be supplied by the art school.
