Senior Canadian artist Phil Richards, creator of the official Diamond Jubilee portrait of Queen Elizabeth II for the Government of Canada, will discuss his career and motivations for a general audience. Phil will screen the NFB short documentary about his Royal Portrait “The Portrait” by the Academy Award nominated director Hubert Davis as part of this presentation.

Portraiture Master Class

Phil Richards will lecture in depth on the process he employed when creating the Queen’s portrait, and he will perform an extended demonstration of his drawing method, which audience members will be welcome to participate in the drawing lesson in their sketchbooks or to simply observe as they please. This is a rare opportunity to learn the working methods of one of Canada’s premier painters.
