Oil Painting for beginners

4 Weeks 10-12.30pm, Thursdays 28 April – 19 May 2022
£120. Maximum class size 4.

Classes will take place in the artist’s studio in the heart of Stony Stratford. The course’s step-by-step approach will feature demonstrations and exercises at each stage. No prior experience with oils required.

Lesson topics will include:
• Build your confidence and understand the versatility of oil paints. We will focus on how to choose your colours, lay out your palette and work with oil paint medium and brushes.
• Develop your observational skills by learning to paint from still life, focusing on fruit, flowers and objects from around the house.
• Use drawing and tonal studies to develop ideas for your composition.
• Develop skills in mixing observed colour and using the colour wheel to alter colours.
• Work towards a more complex painting in your final week, which can be either on oil paper, canvas or board.

Paints, brushes, oil paper, oil medium and solvent supplied. The solvent used on this course is low odour Gamsol. If you wish to paint on board or canvas, please bring these with you to the class.
