SATURDAY 7/13 & SUNDAY 7/14, from 9:30 am-4:30 pm
Paint looser, and bring a boost energy to your oil painting with artist Sarah Sedwick. Working from a fun, colorful still-life, we’ll talk color mixing, composition, and brushwork, and create a beautiful painting, from start to finish!
Pack your paintings with confident, harmonious color while simplifying your palette. Get a new perspective on the still life, and learn tips for bringing inspiration to your home studio practice.
We will do quick, fun exercises and a longer duration painting. Continue your oil painting journey during this fun weekend workshop! (Painters of all levels welcome, ages 15 and above.)
Two-day workshop, 7 hours each day. Maximum of 6 students.

Instructor: Sarah Sedwick

Oregon Art Supply is generously offering a 20% discount on all materials for this class!
If you aren’t sure what to get, you can purchase what you need during the workshop.
I will be happy to help and show you what I use!

Palette - a 12x16 (or larger) disposable paper palette pad. Get white, not gray.

Palette knife – not a teeny one. You want to be able to scoop up a pile of paint with it.

Rags or paper towels (I like disposable blue shop towels, available at hardware stores)

Solvent: Gamsol or Turpenoid

  • 2 glass jars with tight-fitting lids
  • Paint - I use M. Graham brand. Please include the following colors:
  • Titanium white
  • Pyrrol Red
  • Alizarin Crimson
  • Ultramarine Blue
  • Hansa Yellow
  • Cadmium Yellow (medium)

Brushes - I use Connoisseur Taklon (synthetic, white bristles) and hog bristle, but it's up to your preference. I recommend a range of sizes from #2 round and a #4 Flat

Canvases or other painting surfaces:

One or two canvas panels, a pad of canvas paper, Arches oil paper, or any inexpensive painting surface for studies

One canvas 8x8, 11x14, 10x10, 12x12 or similar size/shape for your final painting. (you can purchase this during the workshop.)

View Catcher

A Sketchbook and pencil

Easel and side table

o A standing (not table-top) travel easel. Sometimes called a french easel. I use a half-box french easel by Mabef, called the “backpacker.” OAS and the instructor have a couple of easels to lend. If you do not have one, don’t worry! If you do have one, great!

o A TV table or side table for your palette (optional, but helpful!)
