START-UP: INTRO TO OIL PAINTING
An introductory course for those who have never painted in oils before and for those who want to shift to using oil paints having used acrylics or water-based media.
Students learn to see colour, shape and tone, and to relate these elements together in compositions. This course aims to nurture self-confidence and enjoyment of painting in a stimulating, fun and relaxing environment.
We will begin with the basics of organising your palette using a limited colour range, we learn to colour mix and preparation/clean up without using harmful solvents.
We will focus on observational painting touching on still life, landscape/urbanscape and portraiture.
We will look at tone, composition, space, perspective, and colour with progressive developments in these skills.
It is an ideal course for beginners with plenty of guidance from the tutor.
