This module provides students with an opportunity to develop the study of oil techniques, grounds, colour mixing and theory through the genre of portraiture. The emphasis will be on the practical application of rendering portraiture with an addition of discussion to include the changing role of portraiture as a result of photography. A folio of work from primary and secondary sources will demonstrate the tonal painting skills needed to produce a series of self-portraits and portraits. It is advisable to complete "Introduction to Oil Painting" or other level one painting courses before embarking on this course.
