This two day course will teach you the basics of representational oil painting. 

This course is open to absolute beginners, beginners and, equally, those wishing to expand their previous painting knowledge into direct painting.

Take home a wealth of knowledge to inspire you and guide you onto your next steps.

Students will learn:

  • How to set up an oil painting
  • Wet-into-wet as well as wet-on-dry techniques
  • How to manipulate oil paint using different brushes (hog vs. synthetic)
  • The basics of representational oil painting (drawing, values, edges, etc.)
  • Colour mixing
  • What to look for when choosing materials

Students will complete two oil paintings over the two days. The goal is not to have a finished painting, but to feel confident painting in oils at home.
