During this workshop we will paint a simple Australian landscape using oil paints. The technique used is a very simple one which is ideal for beginners to start with. The technique is also applicable to use with acrylic paints.
The aim of these workshop is to help participants understand the use of color and how to develop a painting using multiple layers of paint while looking at composition, color, tone, texture and edges.
We will start the day with a brief introduction on oil painting and materials that we are going to use. We will then introduce landscape painting and the methodology we are going to use to paint this painting.
We will then start working on the painting itself. We will first sketch the picture on the available canvas and start mixing color.
Work-Shop will supply cheese platters and fruit to have during the break, as well as wine to have as you finish your artworks.
After the break we will continue where we left before and we will start adding more details to the painting. By the end of the day we will have a finished painting everyone will be happy to take home. Throw that artwork on your wall and expect family and friends to be amazed! Whether you have experience with oil paints, or are looking to try something new, we can’t wait to see you at Work-Shop!
Testimonials: ..."Though I have been painting for number of years I did not have a clear & exact idea about many of the things you taught us that day. And there is no place where anyone can come to know all those details in one go. So you did a great job." - Kithsiri Gunawardane "...Your workshop last Sunday was excellent - very well planned & informative. Good notes, demonstrations on varnishing, framing etc were all very well presented & we both gained the knowledge we were needing. Thanks a lot for organising the day..." - Glynis and Paul
