This course in an introduction to representational oil painting. The course will cover:
—colour mixing and the colour wheel, using warm and cool colours to enhance representational imagery, colour saturation and chromatic greys
—how to create a pleasing composition
—how to work from photographs in a painterly way, and work from life
—tone and value in realism
—traditional painting skills and methods
This course will suit people wishing to create paintings from their own photographic references, or from weekly set-ups in the studio. The aim is to encourage everyone to complete a work with meaning and interest for them, and to improve their skills along the way.
Basic oil paints, preferably a warm and cool yellow (lemon yellow, cadmium yellow) a warm and cool red (alizarin crimson, cadmium red) a warm and cool blue (ultramarine blue, pthalo blue) and black and white. However if you have a particular palette you like to work with, that’s absolutely fine. Oil painting paper for the first week, and for quick studies, and a canvas or board for the final painting (this will be discussed in more detail in week 1). A selection of brushes. Please also bring any photographic references or idea you have that you would like to explore during the course.
