16 & 23 August 2020

TUTOR Sheena Russell
DAY Sunday 10am – 3pm
DATES 16 & 23 August (2 days)
LOCATION Art Studios

We’ll be working over 2 Sundays, starting off by a brief introduction to basics such as mixing colours, application and consistency of paint, then putting this into practice painting an object in natural light. We’ll look at choosing subject matter, development of ideas and approaches to starting a piece, composition, as well as thinking about scale, texture, surface and finish.

If you are new to oil paint, this is an excellent way to try out a potentially tricky material in a suitable space with advice and support. If you have some experience with this already, it is an opportunity to refresh your technique and enjoy two days of painting with the support of an experienced painter to help develop your skills and style.

Schedule: (This schedule is subject to alterations depending on the needs of the group and weather conditions)

Day 1:

Morning: Introductions, materials, drawing, colour. Painting a relatively simple shape using natural light.

Afternoon: Elipses/perspective, measuring, composition and tone

Day 2:

Morning: Perspective, landscape/still life, texture, composition

Afternoon: Continuation of landscape/still life

Learning outcomes:

Drawing and observational skills, how to choose subject matter. A greater understanding of the medium of oils, it’s versatility and potential.
