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

The subject of this workshop will be a still life set up and will be suitable for beginners and improvers.

Starting with a traditional still life study, we will ‘abstract from’ this, working on canvas or board to create a finished painting in oils, taking inspiration from early 20th century and contemporary artists. Composition and use of colour will be important considerations to be covered during the process.

All materials are provided, but we recommend wearing old clothes or an apron to protect your clothing.

Includes - Materials. Tea, coffee and biscuits.
