Portraiture with Catherine MacDiarmid
A fantastic opportunity to complete a portrait from life in a day. You will be guided through drawing exercises to help with basic measuring and observation skills, tone and composition work in drawing media. The workshop with culminate in a long pose (option to use painting media) enabling you to put those skills into practice in a portrait from life. Expert advice will be geared towards pushing your portrait skills to a level that you have never achieved before, whatever your level of ability.
Catherine MacDiarmid is a local artist who has exhibited widely, including exhibiting in the BP Portrait award for young artists in 2001/2. She is an elected member of The Lakes Artists Society and appeared in Sky Portrait Artists of the Year 2014, 2018 and 2019. As well as completing private portrait commissions her work is collected internationally. Catherine works from her home based studio in Kendal. Her art work focuses on the human form, exploring expression and movement in both drawing & painting.
The workshop fee is £70 and includes a tasty 2 course lunch with home baked bread and cake and refreshments throughout the day. We like to finish the day with a cup of tea and slice of cake. Eat outside or enjoy lunch by the wood burner.
This workshop will be at Cowshed Creative, based in a traditional converted Lakeland barn at Browfoot Farm. The art studio is a stunning open plan space with plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing Lakeland landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere valley. Make it a special break and stay on the farm.
