Learn Oil Painting with Paul Alcock – Still Life
Contact course provider
About the Course
One day oil painting class at Old Bank Studios - beginners welcome.
This workshop is part of our Autumn Oils Special Offer – Book All Four for £200 (see separate listing).
Using a collection of simple objects as your subject, learn about composition, tonal values and colour mixing – the building blocks of all successful painting.
Paul will introduce you to some simple rules of composition followed by a quick demo to show you his approach to tackling the subject. Through your own painting you will learn how to observe and capture the essence and character of the objects and the relationships between them. From your initial under painting through to completion, you will gain experience in the use of oils to describe light and shade, hard and soft edges, and warm and cool colours.
Especially Aimed at Beginners, but great fun for anyone.
