Classes

Eight session class

Daytime

Students will learn how to use the beautiful & versatile medium of oil paint.

This material is particularly suited to depicting both still life and the natural environment & its subjects. However, figurative compositions may also be illustrated.

The location of the Art Centre is ideally situated for painting both the natural and the urban landscape looking out on the river and Kew Gardens.

Each session will begin with a demonstration of the fundamental technique to be practised and followed by a more sustained study of a particular subject.

All lessons will be set in context and the review and evaluation of the work of other artists will be considered in order to inform and expand the content of the session.

Starter exercise: Preparatory studies in mixing colour, a tonal scale using one colour.

Main exercise: Painting a colour wheel, primaries, secondaries & tertiary colours plus tints.

Methodology of process will be demonstrated in order to establish best practice.

Did you know?

There are many experimental techniques that can be used with oil paints and the spontaneity that can arise unexpectedly from a particular study can often lead into some very creative and unexpected results. The scale of a piece of work can vary considerably and this medium can facilitate some large scale ambitious pieces of painting.

This oil painting course has so far (4/6 classes through) been fun, , very well taught , of an exceptionally high standard in terms of explanations and expectation. That said, well as Sue being really kind, friendly and supportive of us all!I cannot recommend highly enough. My concentration and perception has improved significantly and I am really enjoying remembering my school day lessons and thinking how much I wish Sue had been my Teacher then, though my attention may not have been as good as it is now! Thank you Sue Cooper for all your help and encouragement ! I am very grateful indeed!

Even though it is the other side of London for us it was worth the effort to go. Sue is a great teacher and was very patient with us. Great for beginners like me and intermediates as well. Good location with great views of the riverbank. Highly recommend
