A practical 4 week course in oil painting from life, introducing the most basic principles of observing nature, using materials and rendering form – all presented in a simple step by step manner.
The course involves working on 4 paintings in a series of weekly exercises of slightly increasing complexity. Each exercise involves painting from life to understand light, form, space and simple colour, going from a initial 2D block-in to a final 3D effect. This course is ideal for both beginners and painters who want to do a refresher on the most important basics of painting in oils.
