Alfonso will be teaching the secrets of realistic skin tone, from colour interaction and tonal variation, to interpretation of shape and light to pushing your contrast! He will also plough into the depths of colour theory giving you a detailed explanation of how and why colours interact the way they do! It is with no exaggeration that I say that the skills and knowledge you will acquire aren’t being taught any where else in the UK.
The workshops costs £125 for both days, included along with your tuition is your free miniature and hobby support for as long as you want it after the workshop, no doubt questions will arise once you continue to apply your new knowledge and we will be here, continuing to give feedback and advice, helping to push your progression!
The workshop will run from 10am until 6pm, the workshop will be broken up into 4 main chunks, morning and afternoon session over the 2 days, the morning sessions will be more focused on the theory and ideas of what I will be teaching, with an hour or two in between demonstrations to get some painting done, the focus on the afternoon sessions is for you to sit down and get a good few hours painting in so you can really get to grips with what is being taught. Alfonso and I will be there to give you feedback and reinforce the ideas, theories and techniques, give you advice how can improve your technical skills and answer any hobby related question you can think of! When the day is done we usually head out for a few drinks and something to eat, Cambridge is a great town full of wonderful pubs and eateries.
