Making a portrait is possibly the most difficult thing any draughtsman or painter can attempt. It's complicated but it's also hugely rewarding. Anthony is an encouraging and perceptive tutor. He doesn't teach a method but works with each artist individually which means that the workshop is suitable for all abilities. This workshop attracts all levels of experience and expertise and the atmosphere is always friendly and supportive. These workshops are very popular so do book early.
