BLOCK T Skillsets Presents an Introduction to Oil Painting with the artist Nicholas Robinson. A practical 6 week course in oil painting from life, introducing the most basic principles of observation, materials and rendering form – all presented in a simple step by step manner.
The course involves working on 3 paintings in a series of bi-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.
3 primed canvasses will be provided per student, brushes and paints will be required.
