Workshops | Oil Painting Beginners
Friday 5 May 2017
Always wanted to learn oil painting but never knew where to start? Got a set of oil paints lying around but not sure what to do with them? Come to this workshop to learn the basics, ask any and all questions and have a go. I will explain the what and the how of oil painting, we will discuss brands, brushes, mediums and supports and work from a simple still life to explore the painting process.
The kitchen has limited space: there is room for 2 students using table easels and around 3 small floor easels. Feel free to bring your own small floor easel if you have one (let me know), but I can provide one for you as well. We can extend the table to accommodate more table easels if needed.
If you like to bring your own materials:
! No turps or solvents! Please do not bring any toxic solvents as we would like to keep the air clean. We have our lunch in the same small space. We can wipe clean brushes on kitchen roll and if needed a quick clean in solvent (provided) at the end of the day.
Please do not bring too much as space is limited. If you have any questions about the materials or the workshop, feel free to ask!
