What Will I Learn?

You will also explore the basics of oil painting and acquire a range of useful technical skills. You will learn how to bring out the full quality of the medium.

Content of the Course

Discover the magic of glazing with oil paints to create depth and light in your painting. We will be painting like the old masters by applying coloured transparent layers of paint on to a monochrome painting and working into them to model form with opaque colours and create highlights. Working from still life initially in acrylics as their drying time is quicker. Suitable for beginners and those with some experience.

Equipment Needed

Any oil paints or brushes you may have already.
You will need to bring a packed lunch.
