PAINTING WITH OILS
A One-Day Workshop
Whether you’re a beginner picking up a brush for the first time or someone returning to art after a long time away from the easel, this workshop is designed to be both informative and fun. Beginning with a discussion on the “basics” of oil painting (from materials to paint handling), this workshop will also address the fundamentals of color, value, edges and perspective. Instruction will include a short painting demo by Dan, with explanation of his process along the way. Participants will then work from a still life to paint quick studies that incorporate the techniques discussed, with plenty of one-on-one individual instruction throughout the day. Students supply their own equipment and materials (click here for list and recommendations).
