Wednesday 1st August to Friday 3rd August

Paint a landscape in oils from your own photographs in 3 days. For not-quite beginners and intermediate oil painters. We will consider the challenges that face a landscape painter. How much detail should be included? How do we deal with all those greens? How can we create a sense of space and perspective? We'll begin with a tonal drawing in pencil on paper from your photo and then do a tonal underpainting in oils on canvas. After matching the main colours through colour-mixing you'll be able to paint the main tonal areas. On the last day we'll add detail and complete the painting.
All your specialist equipment will be provided for 12.00. This includes oils, canvasses, brushes, palette knives, solvent etc.
