Portrait painting with painting knives workshop.
I had an enjoyable day running a workshop on portrait painting with painting knives at Micklems farm near Henley on Thames. It was fully booked but 5 people cancelled because of the coronavirus, I think this will be my last workshop for a few months while covit 19 is still at large.

Portrait painting demonstration.
I had an enjoyable evening demonstrating portrait painting from life at Virginia Water art society.
As ever it was a challenge with only 2 hours including a tea break.
"This evening Mark Fennell came to Virginia Water Art Society to demonstrate painting in oil the Portait of Anthony one of our members. The likeness was incredible and in less than 2 hours Mark talked us through his process. The evening was very enjoyable and everyone was impressed by the results, thank you Mark"

Portrait painting demonstration.
Another enjoyable portrait painting demo, I felt the pressure on this one painting Patrick from life for Eastcote art society.
I think a backdrop and more dramatic lighting would have helped!

Nice to get away from the grey skies, teaching portrait painting to a great bunch of artists in the Algarve. “I thought Mark was great. He was informative and gentle in his approach and has instilled in me a sense of ‘breaking down’ in steps the task of portrait painting.
In addition it was nice to meet new people.” SALLY

Really enjoyed a recent acrylics portrait painting demonstration at Berkhamstead art society.
I didn’t have time to finish it at the demo, so i carried on with it in my studio and here’s the result.

“Our many thanks to Mark, so say all who thoroughly enjoyed his recent demonstration at the
Berkhamsted Art Society when Mark produced, with gusto, a superb portrait painting in acrylic whilst
enlightening us to his way of working. Truly informative, inspiring and entertaining.

This is not the first time that he has demonstrated for our Society and we doubt that it will be the last- Here’s hoping that we can book Mark again for a future demonstration or workshop.
Much appreciated. “
