Drawing Workshop with Tom McLean
Millennium Wing Studio
Join artist Tom McLean for a special drawing workshop inspired by Sorolla: Spanish Master of Light.
Tom will discuss the development of his practice, touching on second- and third-level education and post-graduation. Using examples of his own work, at various stages of completion, he will discuss how to plan a painting from conceptual idea, to preliminary drawing, to the initial stages of the painting. Participants will then take part in a practical workshop, with Tom demonstrating the skills needed for the first steps of portrait making. All materials provided.

McLean was shortlisted for the Hennessey Portrait Prize 2016, and was awarded the Whtyes Award at the 188th RHA Annual Exhibition.
