THE SARUM STUDIO
DRAWING AND PAINTING COURSES
The Sarum Studio offers the only courses in the UK committed to sight-size drawing and painting. Beginners work from the cast and life model before proceeding to portrait drawing and painting, while more experienced students often return to further develop their skills. Sustained projects allow ample time for criticism and the study of shape, colour/values and modelling.

Illustrated throughout with colour photographs, the book includes step by step sections on drawing and painting portraits - and casts - from life, as well as essays on the origins of sight-size as a portrait practice, the history of the limited palette, and the 'philosophy of seeing'.

Also included is an an analysis of three early texts on portraiture, the essay The Visual Image: Silence and Slow Time by Charles H. Cecil, and an appendix on materials.

Next year (2014) there will be an extra week in February, making it a two week course, and another week at the beginning of the Summer Course, which will make it eight weeks in total.
