Which canvas, paint, brush; how to blend, dry brush, ‘wet in wet’, ‘fat over lean’, what do all these terms mean? These questions and many more are explored in creative ways to render effects and styles. We’ll try different surfaces and brushes and get to grips with the core qualities of oils. We’ll paint abstracts, landscapes, still life, people, clouds, water, fur and any special requests if we have the time. One-to-one tuition is given at every stage, with technical brush skills and we’ll also look at the essential ingredients to picture making, such as tonal values and balance, composition and the centre of interest. Most materials provided – some required.
