This is a full-day class where you will learn how to paint a Blue Mountains scenery in oils
This class is good for beginners and anyone who wants to experiment with using oil paints. You will have a brief introduction about oil painting and the materials that we will be using. We will also talk about landscape painting and the approach.
You do not need to buy any materials as I will be providing them (all materials included).
Half way through we will have a 45 min break. Lunch is not included.
What you will learn:
- How to understand colour: concepts of the colour theory and mixing and its application in the landscape
- Observing and painting approach to landscapes in oils, composition and creating depth using colour, tone and perspective
- Using underpainting and layering of paint while blending colours to create beautiful colours
What to wear:
There is a chance that you stain your clothes, so wear clothes that you do not mind if you stain them
What to bring with you?
Just bring a notebook to take some notes, camera to take photos / video and lunch. The rest will be provided
In this painting class I do not use toxic turpentine. However a minimal amount of odourless solvents are used. Please note that for safety reasons the painting class is not recommended for pregnant women.
