Discover the skills of painting portraits with oils and allow true character to emerge

It’s a revelation to watch how Roger Dellar teaches portraiture, treating the face as a landscape to be discovered and revealed.  His gentle teaching manner will encourage you to tackle portraits. He’s a master in helping others develop painting skills.

We have great models to sit for you.

Under Roger’s practical guidance you find poise and assurance in your painting as well as new creative observation.  Following the progression of a painting through the duration of the workshop means that you will have a firm understanding of oil techniques.

In his demos and tutorials Roger gives tips on how to compose and how to handle aspects of oil painting to make vibrant paintings, sharing his techniques for colour mixing, paint application, brushwork, tone, capturing light and unique character.  The immediacy of oil painting is exciting and rewarding; this course is suitable for all standards.

We will be working in the Art Safari Studio, where we will have refreshments and lunches to keep us fuelled.

The Art Safari Studio is on the quayside in the pretty market town of Woodbridge, Suffolk, with fabulous views of the Deben Estuary and its boats from the elevated deck.  The iconic Tide Mill is just a few steps away and the mysterious Anglo-Saxon burial site at Sutton Hoo is just across the river.

In the evenings there’s the option to gather in a local restaurant or pub for a convivial Art Safari evening (dinner not included).

An equipment list will be provided.  It is also helpful to bring an easel as Roger will encourage you to paint standing up.
