Paint your own self-portrait using acrylics to build up colour, tone and texture. The work will be informed by looking at the Holburne’s portrait collection. You will learn about proportion, how to mix skin tones, use different brushes for a range of mark-making, build up light and dark areas, and create facial expression to bring your portrait to life.
