Absolute Beginners Oil Painting – Still Life***Only 2 Places Remaining***
ALL MATERIALS and LIGHT LUNCH INCLUDED
Using a collection of simple objects as your subject, learn about composition, tonal values and colour mixing – the building blocks of all successful painting.
Paul will introduce you to some simple rules of composition followed by a quick demo to show you his approach to tackling the subject. Through your own painting you will learn how to observe and capture the essence and character of the objects and the relationships between them. From your initial under painting through to completion, you will gain experience in the use of oils to describe light and shade, hard and soft edges, and warm and cool colours.
Especially Aimed at Beginners, but great fun for anyone.
