Oil Painting Basics

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Keep it simple! Learn to paint from real objects, not photos. Concentrating on tone, we will paint a few simple, single objects: an apple, a cup, a teapot – or bring your own object. We will use light and shade to give a strong illusion of reality. This will provide a solid foundation for good still-life, portrait or landscape painting.

What to bring

  • Own canvas, palette, brushes and oil paint if you already have them. Otherwise materials can be purchased during the first lesson for $25 this includes painting boards, use of brushes, paints, turps, easels etc
  • Own refreshments and lunch
