Elspeth is passionate about classical art and naturalistic portraiture and is continually learning methods of painting and drawing to create their own work. She paints in oils and draws in charcoal and is inspired by the traditional methods of painting and drawing. Elspeth is passionate about sharing these skills in a simplified and accessible way with budding artists.
Three hours with her attentive and enthused teaching and you can expect to have gained an almost secret insight into the methods of making beautiful realistic charcoal drawings. Participants can expect to gain an in-depth understanding of the medium. You'll walk out the studio with a finished piece, excited to start your next with your hands full of new skills and ideas.
