A 3 day immersive painting experience with Perth Artist Rachelle Dusting guiding you in creating a realistic oil portrait!
About this Event

Portrait Painting Intensive is a 3 day workshop intensive with Perth fine artist Rachelle Dusting, designed as a step-by-step guide to creating a portrait similar to Rachelle’s painting style and blending the perfect skin tones. Develop an understanding of tone, value and temperature within oil painting through a realistic painting technique.
This workshop is a great introduction to the basics of oil painting in mixing colour and how to use oil paint materials, and is both beginner and intermediate friendly.


Rachelle will walk participants through methods she adapts to in the studio and choices of materials. This 3 day painting workshop will allow students to explore portrait painting in a realistic way alongside likeminded creatives.

With over 9 years practice as a professional artist and tertiary level qualifications, Rachelle is as passionate about communication as she is about painting.

This workshop is a fantastic opportunity to pick the brains of a practicing artist in the arts industry, as well as gain valuable knowledge to a classic style of art making.

To conclude the workshop, a Saturday Sundowner will be hosted by Blue Water Bistro across the way from the workshop building, for all participants to celebrate the conclusion of a fantastic 3 day paint!

PLEASE NOTE: Material List & Workshop Preparation PDF will be emailed on confirmation of ticket purchase.
