Course description

Progress with oil painting – exploring mediums and techniques: This course is designed to provide Intermediate and Advanced level Learners with an opportunity to develop and improve their oil painting skills and gain a broader understanding of this versatile medium. Experiment with various textures and oil painting techniques to develop a series of studies which consider the relationship between positive and negative form and the subject of a painting and its surface. You will explore the traditional and contemporary materials and methods of oil painting. Topics will include constructing canvases, priming, preparing grounds (including gesso) and use of dammar varnish and mastic mediums, egg tempera. Instruction will be given on paint handling, working with varied consistencies of paint and brushwork. Emphasis will be placed upon the art of looking, concentrating upon selection and composition, colour and tonal relationships. Through practical examples, individual and group discussion, you will learn how to start, develop and resolve a painting. Participants will work from still-life subjects and other observational sources.
