An Intro to Oil Painting
November 2nd, 2021 at 2.00pm
A 6-week course for complete beginners and improvers
Commencing November 2nd PM

On this beginner’s course you’ll learn how to paint in traditional oils in simple and easily achievable stages. You’ll learn about colour mixing and paint application, as well as advice on the best materials to use in helping you produce the most satisfactory results.

The course will lead you through the selection and preparation of suitable painting surfaces, subject matter, and composition. There will be demonstrations of painting techniques with both brush and palette knife, and you will have plenty of sympathetic, one-to-one assistance in developing your own preferred style of painting.

The subject matter will be varied, encompassing still life subjects, landscapes, and seascapes. The course will be a fun and light-hearted introduction to the possibilities of this versatile medium.

A variety of reference material will be provided, but towards the end of the course you may bring along any images or objects that you would like to work from.
