Workshop Description

Capturing a moment in time and space is the business of oil painting, but it does not happen by chance. In this workshop students will explore the crucial building block of traditional representational oil painting, which is the sensation of light. A little science, geometry, art history and observation will yield big results for your individual painting practice. Best practices in paint mixing, using mediums and pigments, and building the layers of an oil painting will also be covered. Participants will work individually and as a group to increase their power as painters. Both beginners and experienced painters will plan, craft and complete one or more small paintings that demonstrate increased mastery of the perception of light. Open to all skill levels.
