I will be running another Introduction to Portrait Painting Workshop in Oils at Northampton’s Museum and Art Gallery on 19th February 2022.  My workshop is an ideal introduction to portrait painting for newcomers and more experienced painters alike. A portrait in oils will be produced, with attention to facial proportions and tone to create a realistic image. Working from a reference photograph and a step by step process, I will guide you through painting a portrait. The workshop is perfect for both beginners and painters with some experience. Price £65 per person.

The museum is a great venue to hold the workshop and have a central focus for Northampton art again. After opening on 10th July 2021 following a major redevelopment which began in 2017. It’s now up and running with a selling gallery and permanent collections on show. To find out more about the museum click on this link. https://www.northamptonmuseums.com/site/index.php

New studio space for artist Cordell Garfield! As an artist it’s great to be in my new studio space with the move of the NN Contemporary Art site http://www.nncontemporaryart.org/spaces/. The new central museum next door, opens on 20th June 2020, and my new artistic space is ideally located for me.

Above all the larger new space displays my artwork in a way I haven’t been able to before. This link shows a selection of my portraits, some of which I can now show in the flesh! https://www.cordellgarfield.com/gallery/portraits/

I intend to use this new studio space not only creatively, but also for the Open Studios in September. Keep your eye on developments as I will be selling some of my work in the Open Studios. As always there will be a range of portraits, but also some of my landscapes as well.
