Have you always wanted to learn to paint or improve your skills, but been unsure where to begin? In this Intensive 10 hour workshop we will dive into the wonderful world of oil painting. We’ll work from photo reference of engaging still life subjects to gain a better understanding of forms in three dimensional space, and focus first on principles of value, contrast, paint application, and composition. Using a split primary palate, we will explore methods of color mixing, and learn to replicate and enhance the color notes we see in our reference. There is no need to be intimidated by this exciting and surprisingly forgiving medium, all levels of experience are welcome!
