About the Course

This workshop offers the opportunity to create your own interpretation of a still life set up, taking inspiration from early 20th century and contemporary artists. A series of exercises are designed to give you the confidence to pare down the inessential to arrive at the essence of the subject. You will work on a canvas or board to create a finished oil painting. Composition and use of colour will be important considerations to be covered during the process.

This workshop is suitable for beginners or improvers.

All materials are provided, but we recommend wearing old clothes or an apron to protect your clothing.
