Oil Painting for Beginners 2 day Workshop - February
Date/ Time - February 2023 - Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th 10-4pm
Materials - all materials provided
Skill Level - suited to all levels
If you want to try your hand at oils for the first time or refresh your skills this is the workshop for you. This course offers an introduction to the grisaille and underpainting techniques. These techniques are paramount to understanding all forms of painting, whether classical or contemporary. Learn to develop your brushwork and to practice the creation of texture, tone, weight, shadow, temperature and focus, all in one tone. Mastery of the grisaille and underpainting techniques develop the artist's ability to sketch in oil painting quickly and to render flesh, landscapes and still lifes with skill and beautiful brushwork. You then can progress to working in full color in further courses and classes in the studio.
The workshop includes live demonstration by Eoin Llewellyn, as well as ongoing assistance with your work and answers to any questions that arise as you are painting over the 2 days. The workshop hours (10:00-16:00 includes a one-hour break for lunch).
When you complete this workshop or if you are currently painting with oils we would recommend you attend the weekly classes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Saturdays. In these sessions, you can develop your practice and focus on whatever subjects and techniques are of interest to you, either in contemporary or classical painting and drawing under the assuring guidance of the teacher.
