This masterclass will be broken into four parts, each covering a different aspect of painting the head from life. Cian will conduct a demo at the beginning of each part and participants will then apply the principles as they work on their own versions. Individual feedback will be given throughout the masterclass.

Other aspects covered throughout the class include: impasto, wet on to wet painting, using non-conventional implements, composition, colour choice, blending/modelling and thoughts on figuration, abstraction and semi-abstraction.

The technical implications of working with larger amounts of material (paint, mediums etc) will also be addressed.
