Painting days run from 10.00am to 4.00pm with a break for lunch. (don't forget your packed lunch) I start with a quick demo painting and then show you through the method I use, helping along the way. We will look at how to distil your own subjects into a simplified formula method, plus the preparation of painting surfaces, brushes, techniques and methods for achieving various effects. I repeat the demo with a different subject or, even your own reference, showing you how to achieve a quick short cut with a formula you can use time and again.
Please bring your oil paints and brushes plus, if possible, some well gessoed oil painting supports ( boards, not stretched canvas) all other materials such as palettes, low odour turps, rags, easles etc. are provided.
N.B. I make a small charge for paint and prepared boards if you need them.
Light refreshments will be available during the day but please bring a packed lunch with you.
