Introduction to traditional oil
Sunday 20th August
Includes all materials
Following our recent successful portrait workshop, join David to Learn the basic techniques and principles of classical indirect oil painting, to produce fast studies and solid groundings to finished work. All techniques explained can easily be adapted for portraiture, still life and landscape.
I start with a short discussion about oil painting, the mediums and paints used, what indirect painting actually consists of and then get into a day of painting in easy to follow stages using a simple composition portrait/landscape done by an old master that will teach the basic techniques you can practice at home.
