Oil Painting Portrait Workshop at NGV

Oil on canvas board. 12 x 16 in.

As part of 'Radiance: The Neo-Impressionists' exhibition, National Gallery of Victoria conducts some workshops.

I decided to take part in this one, because it's oil painting.

It was tutored by Lewis Miller, Archibald Prize winner, and I've seen his paintings many times at Australian Galleries in Fitzroy.
I like his style a lot.

It was really great to see his demonstration, the shape gradually emerges with many different combinations of colours.
It was like a magic.

I'm glad that I did this class, and I definitely learned a lot.
More than anything else, I need to use colours more confidently, much bolder colours, and focus on tonal balance more carefully.

It was a great day.
