This course will focus on how oil paint allows for a space in between abstraction and representation. The main system of painting taught will be Alla Prima (wet on wet). Instruction will concentrate on working to improve brushwork and other systems of mark making. Also included will be colour mixing, grounds, glazing and tonal balance. The artist will give demonstrations and participants will partake in group discussions and individual feedback.
The main aim of the course will be to encourage a more intuitive understanding of oil paint and its application while still referencing representation. Gabhann will show how to achieve this while accommodating each student to further their own goals and desires in painting.
You will receive a list of suggested art materials upon registration. Please inquire separately about accommodation if required.
