Module 2 – Developing skills and confidence in oil paint – 6 week course starting on Wednesday the 8th of January from 12.00 – 15.00
You will learn and develop your portraiture skills further by exploring colour mixing to create flesh tones. You will gain experience using oil paint to create a traditional style portrait painting, learning how to work with and apply this media to canvas. We will work on your observation skills and help you develop techniques to translate what you see, onto canvas.
Throughout the course artists will create a range of work that they can take away for their portfolio and will at times be able to work from photographs of their own chosen subjects. Paper, drawing and painting materials will be provided but artists are welcome to bring their own equipment if they prefer.
Each session is 3 hours long with a break – tea, coffee and soft drinks will be provided. Attendees can also bring their own food if they would like to eat while they learn.
Once booked on the course, Rebecca will call in the run-up to the first session to discuss your current experience level and to understand any particular aims you are hoping to achieve from the course.
