Service Description

This course is for students who have some experience of painting in oils, who may have completed a beginners course or workshop and would like to take it further! We will be developing brushwork and colour mixing, observing and identifying tonal values to create depth of field, light and shade, working with particular colour schemes and experimenting with rags, rollers, sponges and the palette knife. Subject matter will be varied- still life, landscape, the natural world and the human figure and students will progress toward developing their own personal style, interests and themes. We will be focusing on preparation, observation and interpretation-what to paint, why and how. Materials List (please bring the following materials to class) - Oil paints, 75ml tube size minimum ( starter sets are good value with a range of basic colours that can be supplemented with additional colours) - A range of stiff synthetic long handled brushes suitable for oil paint in a range of shapes and sizes (round, square/flat and pointed head ) approx. 6 different brushes is ideal - One 1 inch household paint brush - Primed canvas, canvas paper paper or primed card - Small bottle turpentine eco alternative (E.g. ‘Zest-it’ ) - Small bottle linseed oil (optional) - Masking tape - Glass jars with lids - Palette (this could be a large plate or plastic tray, tear off paper palettes are good ) - Soft cloth rag such as old pillow case or sheet - Apron or other protective clothing - Palette knife - Household sponge ‘bits’ and small paint rollers (optional).
