Making a portrait is possibly the most difficult thing any draftsman or painter can attempt and making a self portrait can be even more difficult than painting someone else. Every artist, however, will feel some obligation to attempt this curious task.
Anthony is an encouraging and perceptive tutor. Because he doesn't teach a method but works with each artist individually the workshop is suitable for all abilities. This workshop attracts all levels of experience and expertise and the atmosphere is always friendly and supportive.
Anthony Connolly trained at Goldsmith’s College. He is a member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. He has work in many public and private collections including the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle, West Point Military Academy and Rhodes House and Campion Hall, both in Oxford.
He now lives with his family in Wiltshire where he also has a studio. He is an experienced teacher and he is well known here at the Summerleaze where he has been teaching for several years.
