Oil painting workshop – June 22-24 2018

**Note – workshop is now full.  Waitlist only**

For questions or registration, contact Nicole.

In this intensive weekend painting workshop, students will learn about oil painting supplies and materials, how to paint an imprimatura, the importance of dedication to the process rather than the outcome, creating a convincing sense of volume and form, and colour mixing techniques – all with a modified direct painting (alla prima) approach. The style of painting will be representational but not photo-realistic, allowing for a painterly feel. Students will learn to use the reference as a guide more than an ideal.

Students will work from their own photo reference (ideally figurative or portraiture) or a studio-provided still life setup (limited number available). There will be instructor demos, with a focus on plenty of hands-on painting time and individual feedback.

Drawing experience is necessary; oil painting experience is helpful but not required.

Beginners can work in monochrome (white + brown paint) if preferred, to simplify the process and focus on paint application rather than colour mixing.
