Course description:

This workshop is designed for the beginner or improver.
We will be using oil paint and a limited palette to make our own grey scale.
From here we will then go on to paint a tonal portrait/still life using one colour, comparing tonal relationships and shapes to form and three-dimensional object on a two-dimensional surface.
We will look at layering of paint fat over lean and the use of using mediums.
