with guest tutor Sian Smith


Sunday 14th June from 10.00am - 4.00pm

at EDS Studio, 4 Thistle Street NW Lane, EH2 1DR


If you’re brand new to oil painting or you’re looking for an update on the basics, this workshop is specifically designed for you!
This class will give you the foundations you need to feel comfortable getting started and explains each of the skill steps in oil painting. Starting right from the top we will cover everything from how to use and mix oil paint, set up your palette and understand the tools and materials.
Through demonstrations, group and one-to-one instruction, using a still life set up we will proceed onto exploring the techniques involved in painting from understanding the properties of colour (hue, value, temperature and chroma), develop your brushwork and knowledge of how to set up a composition.
If you have a personal project or painting you are already working on and would like to bring that in to work on and get help with, that would also be great!
