Painting People and Portraits: Helen Bishop, Zoe Floyd, Clover Godsal, Cindy Hepburn & Elizabeth Richardson

curated by:

This course explores the elements of portraiture and painting the figure n both systematic and creative ways. We worked from the live model and other sources including film stills, drawings, memory and imagination, plus word prompts, biography and storytelling to open to unexpected and expressive results in painting and collage.
The course was taught by Alison Harper and guest tutors Archie Franks, Melissa Kimes and Tim Patrick.

HELEN BISHOP
At school, I didn’t do any art (not allowed, because I was doing too many ‘academic’ subjects!!!) and I didn’t go to art school, but throughout my life I have done a variety of life drawing, painting and other art classes. I am really enjoying both the studio and the online classes at TheEsop, where the tutors have definitely built my confidence and got me doing more painting at home, and I now have lots of ideas for new paintings (although finishing them is always a struggle!). I am constantly amazed when I look back at what I have done. Hopefully I am also moving beyond the observational and into more imaginative work.
