Van Gogh Portraits with Sarah Wimperis

Friday 14th June 2019

Attic Studios, Pegasus Art

10am – 4pm All Abilities

Sarah Wimperis is a professional artist and illustrator and the only English artist to be part of a team of 125 artists from across the globe to inhabit the works of Vincent Van Gogh in order to create the Oscar nominated animated film Loving Vincent.

Sarah’s workshop is intended to gain a little understanding of the style and techniques of the artist Vincent Van Gogh. It is also intended to be fun and a chance to exercise the right hand side of your brain! It is open to all levels of artist from professional to complete beginner. We will look at several demonstration paintings and drawings in the van Gogh style, Sarah will explain his techniques.

Please bring along a reference photograph of your subject. Try to find a photograph that doesn’t involve lots of teeth showing! If you want to paint a self portrait you will need a small self-standing mirror.
