During this course you will explore the unique qualities of traditional oil painting. Sessions will include preparing board surface, stretching and priming canvas, getting to know your paints, brushes and oil mediums. You will concentrate on portraying a specific type of atmosphere within your chosen theme (it is highly recommended that you collect ideas, sketches and photos prior to the sessions). During the course you will produce a number of short studies (applying Turner’s glazes, exploring texture and getting inspired by the Impressionist style of painting) leading to a final outcome. Whether it will be a quiet and provincial part of a town or a busy and full of noise city street, a dramatic landscape or a bouquet of summer flowers – this is a fantastic opportunity to discover your potential with this medium.
