Portrait Painting with Fiona Graham-Mackay

5 days: 27th-31st January 2020   Fee: £575

Fiona is one of "Britain's foremost portrait painters" says the Daily Telegraph. She is one of just 50 painters selected from more than 80 countries for the 2016 and 2017 BP National Portrait Gallery Summer Exhibition. She is also one of Britain's leading landscape painters with her work covering idyllic river and wildlife scenes in Britain to edgy landscapes and individuals in Pakistan and the Taliban country along the Afghan borders.  Fiona is a highly demanded teacher, teaching in Italy throughout the year and running courses at her studio in East Sussex.

At the more comfortable level of painting, Fiona has returned to portraiture. Her painting of the late Baroness Thatcher’s foreign secretary Lord Carrington now hangs in London and will be featured in a new biography of the British statesman. Her portrait of Prince Michael of Kent is in the entrance to one of Europe’s most famous yacht clubs where he is admiral.
