<p><strong>This workshop is designed to help students understand colour mixing and design in portraiture using 2 limited colour palettes. These palettes are:</strong></p>
<p><strong>Zorn palette - White, Ivory Black, Yellow Ochre and Cadmium Red</strong></p>
<p><strong>Temperature palette - White, Cadmium Orange and Ivory Black.</strong></p>
<p><strong>Students will be able to achieve realistic flesh tones and form through focussing on the key components of value, hue and chroma. Creating a portrait from a photograph, and following a step-by-step process, including setting out your mixing palette, Cordell's workshop will provide guidance and advice on painting your portrait. The process will cover:</strong></p>
<p><strong>Using ol paints</strong></p>
<p><strong>Measuring and mapping out key features from the portrait photograph</strong></p>
<p><strong>The importance of value, hue and chroma in creating portraits</strong></p>
<p><strong>Organisation of a limited colour palette and approach to painting</strong></p>
<p><strong>Cordell will provide painting demonstrations during the day, and supporting handouts as part of the workshop to explain the techniques involved. Suitable for beginners and improvers, you will create a portrait that you will be able to take away with you at the end of the workshop.</strong></p>
<p><strong>Cost - £65 if bringing your own materials / £75 if materials supplied by Cordell</strong></p>
