In this 4-week class with professional figurative painter Ilaria Rosselli Del Turco, explore all phases of painting a portrait, from choosing materials, composition of the palette, use of colors and finished painting. Ilaria will start by working from the live model and continue using photo reference. She will explain how to set up the model, with considerations on light and background, and how to put together her palette. Each week will include artist demos, student critiques and discussions to find solutions to common problems.
Ilaria Rosselli Del Turco is an Italian painter and printmaker. She trained as an illustrator in Italy but soon turned to fine arts, learning to paint in oils from part time courses, after she moved to London in 1999.
Her work has been selected for all major figurative painting prizes in London, such as the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery, the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy, the Threadneedle Prize, the Lynn Painter Stainer’s Prize, and is held in private collections in Europe, the US and Hong Kong, as well as in the collection of the Getty Research Institute in LA and the British Library.
