This one-day taster course is a great introduction for those wanting to explore the medium of oil painting. Throughout the day the tutor will lead the class in hands-on, practical demonstrations to show you how to mix colour, see shape and tone, and relate these elements to form a composition.
You will aim to create two paintings throughout the day. The morning will be spent focusing on how to handle oil paint whilst working from a still-life set up using natural and organic forms, such as flowers or fruit. During the afternoon, students will be taken through detailed colour theory whilst painting a bright and colourful still life.
Students will cover some fundamentals of oil painting involving:
– Colour mixing
– Shape & Tone
– Paint application
The course is led in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, perfect for first time painters.
