National Portrait Gallery regular Ratcliffe will be delivering this fun and informative life drawing session.

Andrew Ratcliffe is a figurative painter based in Cumbria, UK. He was born in Colne, Lancashire in 1948, and studied at Burnley and Canterbury Colleges of Art.  After teaching at The Manchester Grammar School, he became a full-time painter in 1980.

“I am a figurative painter.  My main preoccupation is representing the human figure, ranging from life painting to an in depth analysis of an individual.  I work from life.  The process and the end product are of equal importance. I try to record what I see accurately.  Although I work in a very controlled way, the discrepancies between what I perceive and what ends up on the canvas, due to inaccuracy, lack of control, or the limitations inherent in the chosen medium, result in a form of expressionism.”
