HAND RETOUCHING WORKSHOP WITH KEVIN O’NEILL
In our first week with Kevin, we focus on working with black and white hand prints (fibre and resin coated).
Starting with black and white, the introduction of brush control and imitating grain are more graspable due to
the concentration of tone and density. The second week is where we expand the palette and begin to work with colour!
Hand spotting, hand colouring, blemish reduction and airbrushing are all techniques focused on in this workshop,
along with an introduction to Kevin's process, and experience in the Retouching industry.
The Workshop costs £150, and includes tools, materials, and a home cooked lunch.
All classes run from 11am - 5pm
Please keep in mind that Workshops happen when there is demand.
Get in touch if you would like to know when our next one’s are planned.
