There is so much to think about when you begin an oil painting, and it’s not hard to lose your way and end up with a muddy, flat painting, perhaps because you are so excited about what you think will be the result of your efforts. But, often, you end up disappointed – this is not how you wanted it to look ! In this little two day workshop, you will be guided toward success , and end with a painting that makes you feel happy, and satisfied!
We will begin with the basics, and there will be step by step demonstrations along the way, as each concept is explained. We will cover how to build layers, and what medium to use, and when. Colors – understanding them, and how to work with a limited palette to create a more cohesive painting – how using colors properly help to create a sense of depth a sense of mood. Brushes – what brushes to use, how to hold them properly and use them to create different strokes and textures. What is glazing, how and when is that done? How about scumbling? And, importantly, what are you trying to convey in your painting?
Day one will be given to experimenting with all the above and getting comfortable with the medium. Towards the end of the day, you will begin to plan your painting, using your own resource material. You can lay in the foundations of your painting, giving it time to dry and be ready to begin , and finish, on day two. The best part – you will be excited about starting your next painting!
