'Unravelling the enigma of oils' in 'alla prima' (one sitting)
Whether you are a complete beginner or more accomplished artist, this one-day workshop is aimed at giving you an insight into developing a successful painting process resulting in vibrant and painterly pieces. Oil paint is sometimes seen as 'complex' to use and perhaps even daunting. This will teach foolproof skills and methods in order to dispel the myths and enigma surrounding this 'medium of the Masters'. So if you'd like to learn, re-learn, or re-visit the magic of oil painting this will fulfil that desire.
So, from laying down a ground or under-painting, drawing-out and blocking-in, how putting in 'darks' allows the light to be seen. To which brushes to use to get what result, and making marks for a painterly result. Which colours to use on your palette, how to mix and gain insight and knowledge into using oils in a positive and confident manner - the methodology and the process.
Max Hale, multi-award winning artist and experienced teacher, will share with you his love for this medium and how to use it without fear. In turn you can quiz him about all the tips and tricks that will help build confidence and understanding of the medium.
In all of Max’s teaching his main objective is to build confidence and bring your artistic aspirations in line with your newly found know-how.
