Award-winning artist, Frances Bell RP will be demonstrating the ‘sight-size’ technique in the gallery and answering questions.

Learn about the ‘sight-size’ technique for portrait painting.

Sight-Size is an arrangement of the artist, easel, and subject that allows the artist to see both the subject and artwork at the same time. It prioritizes direct, accurate comparison, and the perception of the whole. Sight-size has a long history, perhaps the most famous Sight-Size artist was John Singer Sargent
