Introduction to painting in oils
This workshop is ideal for beginners, or for those who have previously used other media.
I will explain the basics of painting in oils and the aim of the day is that you will leave with the confidence and knowledge to continue enjoying this versatile medium at home.
All materials are provided; old clothes or an apron to protect your clothing are recommended. By the end of the day you will have produced a tonal study and an oil painting of a still life in colour.
Includes - Materials and all equipment. Tea, coffee and biscuits.

Painting in oils - exploring abstraction
This workshop offers the opportunity to create your own interpretation of a still life set up, taking inspiration from early 20th century and contemporary artists. A series of exercises are designed to give you the confidence to pare down the inessential to arrive at the essence of the subject. You will work on a canvas or board to create a finished oil painting. Composition and use of colour will be important considerations to be covered during the process.
This workshop is suitable for beginners or improvers. All materials are provided.
