"Oil Painting Block Course for (not just) Beginners

A 17 hour block course over 3 days 18, 19, 25 May, starting at 9am each day.

This is a great course for both beginners and experienced oil painters who want to learn about how oil paint works, and the techniques that can be achieved.  You may have been painting with oils for a while but find your works dull, muddy, lifeless or even cracked?  

This is a very structured course delving into the properties, history and science behind oil paint.

Students will end up with 4 paintings using different techniques including old masters, impressionist and contemporary styles.  Good drawing skills are helpful but certainly not necessary, as the focus is on technique and the application of paint.

This course is guaranteed to be fun, challenging and inspirational learning.

Watercolours are the most versatile of all the mediums. Beautiful light effects and flowing washes are achieved by loose and bold brush strokes and a good knowledge of control of pigment and water.

Day One we will paint a simple landscape with cumulus clouds; Day Two a figure from photographs supplied.
