Hybrid oil painting class, places available in person or online.
When I draw and paint, the world just makes sense. I love to reduce things down and deconstruct. This process cultivates a sense of deep peace within me.
Even when I approach something as complex as a portrait I look for the smallest shape that sparks interest for me and the portrait grows outwards. I love to play with texture through brushmarks and medium, softening edges by optically blending carefully mixed colour.
In this course, Sinead shares her method of approaching painting through abstraction. She will push you to look at things anew and deconstruct shape and shadow. As colour is a large part of Sinead’s process, she will guide you through colour mixing and how to consistently mix the colours you need.
We have to learn the rules before we can break them. Explore how shapes interact and jigsaw together. By demonstrating skills and techniques each week to help you with looking, composition, colour-mixing, and paint application, let’s take what’s in your minds eye and make it real.
Whether you are looking to enter the world of oil painting for the first time or shake up your existing patterns, this course could be for you.
